Roman Jakobson

A new era in the physiological investigation of linguistic sounds was opened up by X-ray photography.More Roman Jakobson [08/07/2011 03:08:25]
Acoustic phonetics, which is developing and increasing in richness very rapidly, already enables us to solve many of the mysteries of sound, mysteries which motor phonetics could not even begin to solve.More Roman Jakobson [08/07/2011 03:08:34]
At first acoustics attributed to the different sounds only a limited number of characteristic features.More Roman Jakobson [08/07/2011 03:08:43]
Every linguistic sign is located on two axes: the axis of simultaneity and that of succession.More Roman Jakobson [08/07/2011 03:08:00]
For example, the opposition between acute and grave phonemes has the capacity to suggest an image of bright and dark, of pointed and rounded, of thin and thick, of light and heavy, etc.More Roman Jakobson [08/07/2011 03:08:09]
From a strictly articulatory point of view there is no succession of sounds.More Roman Jakobson [08/07/2011 03:08:17]
Instead of following one another the sounds overlap; a sound which is acoustically perceived as coming after another one can be articulated simultaneously with the latter or even in part before it.More Roman Jakobson [08/07/2011 03:08:34]
It is once again the vexing problem of identity within variety; without a solution to this disturbing problem there can be no system, no classification.More Roman Jakobson [08/07/2011 03:08:45]
Of course, we have known for a long time that a word, like any verbal sign, is a unity of two components.More Roman Jakobson [08/07/2011 03:08:13]
Remember that the pharynx is at a crossroads from which leads off, at the top, the passage to the mouth cavity and the passage to the nasal cavity, and below, the passage to the larynx.More Roman Jakobson [08/07/2011 03:08:22]
Semantics, or the study of meaning, remained undeveloped, while phonetics made rapid progress and even came to occupy the central place in the scientific study of language.More Roman Jakobson [08/07/2011 03:08:31]
The search for the symbolic value of phonemes, each taken as a whole, runs the risk of giving rise to ambiguous and trivial interpretations because phonemes are complex entities, bundles of different distinctive features.More Roman Jakobson [08/07/2011 03:08:49]
The task is to investigate speech sounds in relation to the meanings with which they are invested, i.e., sounds viewed as signifiers, and above all to throw light on the structure of the relation between sounds and meaning.More Roman Jakobson [08/07/2011 03:08:02]
When I speak it is in order to be heard.More Roman Jakobson [08/07/2011 03:08:45]
A new era in the physiological investigation of linguistic sounds was opened up by X-ray photography.More Roman Jakobson [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What's next? Shall we appoint elephants to teach zoology?More Roman Jakobson [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The function of poetry is to point out that the sign is not identical to the referent.More Roman Jakobson [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The poetic function is the set towards the message itself, focus on the message for its own sake which by promoting the palpability of signs, deepens the fundamental dichotomy of signs and objects.More Roman Jakobson [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is once again the vexing problem of identity within variety; without a solution to this disturbing problem there can be no system, no classification.More Roman Jakobson [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Bilingualism is for me the fundamental problem of linguistics.More Roman Jakobson [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Speech sounds cannot be understood, delimited, classified and explained except in the light of the tasks which they perform in language.More Roman Jakobson [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In poetic language, in which the sign as such takes on an autonomous value, this sound symbolism becomes an actual factor and creates a sort of accompaniment to the signified.More Roman Jakobson [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A linguist deaf to the poetic functions of language and a literary scholar indifferent to linguistics are equally flagrant anachronisms.More Roman Jakobson [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The search for the symbolic value of phonemes, each taken as a whole, runs the risk of giving rise to ambiguous and trivial interpretations because phonemes are complex entities, bundles of different distinctive features.More Roman Jakobson [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Languages differ essentially in what they must convey and not in what they may convey.More Roman Jakobson [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
