Signs, Mind, And Reality: A Theory of Language As the Folk Model of the World (repost)

Signs, Mind, And Reality: A Theory of Language As the Folk Model of the World by Sebastian Shaumyan
English | ISBN: 9027252017 | 2006 | 315 pages | PDF | 5,2 MB

The book presents a new science of semiotic linguistics. The goal of semiotic linguistics is to discover what characterizes language as an intermediary between the mind and reality so that language creates the picture of reality we perceive. The cornerstone of semiotic linguistics is the discovery and resolution of language antinomies contradictions between two apparently reasonable principles or laws.

A History of Roget's Thesaurus: Origins, Development, and Design

Werner Hullen, "A History of Roget's Thesaurus: Origins, Development, and Design"
Oxford University Press | April 7, 2005 | ISBN: 0199281998 | PDF | 420 pages | 3.1 MB

Roget's Thesaurus was first published in 1852 and has come to be one of the most famous and widely-used reference works in the world. This is the first account of its genesis. Werner Hullen contends that synonymy (words with similar meanings) is a feature of language without which we could not communicate. He describes the development in the theory and practice of synonymy from Plato to the seventeenth century, when the first English synonym dictionaries began to appear. Roget's Thesaurus, the first synonym dictionary arranged in topical order, represents an enormously significant peak in this development. This book exposes the conceptual framework behind the Thesaurus and shows how it can be interpreted as a predecessor of linguistic semantics.
