Series: Critical Assessments of Leading Linguists
Edward Sapir (1884–1939) was one of the foremost linguists and anthropologists of his time. He is most widely known for his contributions to the study of North American Indian languages. A founder of ethnology, which considers the relationship of culture to language, he was also principal developer of the American (descriptive) school of structural linguistics. Bringing together the best work on Sapir, this long-awaited three-volume collection from Routledge includes a new introduction by the editor, a chronological table of the gathered materials, a bibliography, and a full index. It is destined to be welcomed by all scholars and students of Sapir as an invaluable reference resource.
