Saussure, the Geneva lectures of 1897 and phonology

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


This paper, starting from the recently rediscovered saussurean text of three lectures given at Geneva University (1897), where he presents his thoughts on the syllable, aims to show how this text, together with some notes about the role of the ear in speech recognition, presents an original phonological theory based on the role of phonotaxis, and to which the official phonology has paid but little attention or none.
