About this product
- DescriptionThis book deals with various indigeus traditions of grammatical thought across the globe. Its main perspective is a cross-cultural sociolinguistic and anthropological linguistic account of Indigeus Grammar. The concept (relating to Bru Liebich's term 'Einheimische Grammatik') is taken in its widest sense here to account for a continua of forms and ways of language-oriented research, various degrees of systematic reflection on language structure and use, the culture-specific ingredients of different grammatical schools, linguistic and folk-linguistic speculation, language awareness, linguistic ideologies and similar endeavours. Some assumptions underlying the central hypotheses of this book are: - Linguistics, every grammatical description, has a strong cultural binding. - It is worthwhile to describe the culturally bound differences in a systematic fashion. - There are indigeus grammars and grammarians of entirely different deminations than what Western linguists are accustomed to dealing with. - A heuristic continua of indigeus grammar can be set up which is worth being studied by linguists in a cross-cultural comparative fashion.
