By Ferdinand de Saussure, Eisuke Komatsu, Roy Harris

The notes taken via Saussure's pupil Emile Constantin weren't on hand to the editors of the broadcast Cours de linguistique generale (1916), and got here to mild basically after the second one international battle. they've got by no means been released of their entirety. The 3rd and final process lectures, of which Constantin stored this very complete checklist, is mostly thought of to symbolize a extra complex model of Saussure's instructing than the sooner . it really is transparent that Constantin's notebooks supply a textual content which differs in a couple of major respects from the Cours released through Saussure's unique editors, and convey ahead rules which don't emerge within the 1916 book. They represent distinctive proof in regards to the ultimate levels of Saussure's brooding about language. This variation of the notes is followed by means of an creation and an entire English translation of the textual content. there was no try made through Komatsu and Harris, to show the English into readable prose. Constantin's notes, whilst revised by way of their writer, hold the infelicities, repetitions, abruptness - sometimes incoherences - that betray the conditions in their starting place. the amount constitutes a huge landmark within the heritage of contemporary linguistics and gives crucial documentation for all students and libraries focusing on the subject.

Sample text

French is an imported language in Marseille, Geneva and Besançon. The same is the case in Germany, where local dialects survive better, whereas in France they tend to disappear. Also in England, where local dialects survive. In Italy too; in Naples, a play in the dialect of Milan will not be understood. This occurred in Greek, which gradually developed a dialect based on Ionic: the κοινή. Greek inscriptions reveal a host of local forms of speech, quite unlike the κοινή. An offical Babylonian language is also believed to have been identified.

In Courland and Livonia: Russian, German and Lettish (German colonists came in the Middle Ages under the auspices of the Hanseatic League). In Lithuania: Lithuanian, Polish and Russian. In the Prussian province of Poznan, Polish and German are spoken. 17 Cahier I En Bohême: coexistence entre le tchèque et l'allemand. En Hongrie, la coexistence des langues est telle que seuls les habitants peuvent dire quelle langue on parle dans tel ou tel village (en Transylvanie): magyar, roumain, croate, allemand.

Ce qu'il y a de général dans le langage, ce ne sera pas ce que nous cherchons, c'està-dire l'objet immédiatement donné. Mais il ne faut pas se mettre non plus devant quelque chose de partiel. Ainsi, il est clair que l'appareil vocal a une importance qui peut attirer l'attention plus ou moins exclusive, et quand on aura étudié ce côté phonatoire de la langue, on s'apercevra vite qu'à ce côté répond un côté acoustique. Et cela n'est encore que purement matériel. On n'a pas abordé ce que c'est que le mot, l'union de l'idée avec ce produit phonatoire, mais si l'on prend l'union de l'idée et du signe vocal, il faut se demander si c'est dans l'individu qu'on étudie ou dans une société, dans une masse sociale; on se voit toujours dans quelque chose d'incomplet.
