Example text

Furthermore, heresy may often take the form of claiming to be more strictly orthodox than the orthodox. It is interesting to reflect that those linguists who, at one time or another, appeared to be offering the most serious theoretical objections to Saussure in the end turned out to be offering no challenge at all. One thinks particularly here of two major figures in American linguistics: Leonard Bloomfield and Zellig Harris. Both, interestingly enough, thought they were redefining linguistics 22 ON REDEFINING LINGUISTICS because they held certain views about the nature of science and about the human mind.

That is to say, opening the door in this particular situation is a response which qualifies as ‘linguistic’ no less indubitably than A’s vocalization. It is not to say that every time a door is opened linguistic communication is taking place; any more than it is to say that every time a given sequence of sounds is produced linguistic communication is taking place. But to acknowledge that in opening the door B makes a linguistically appropriate contextual response to A’s utterance is to recognize that B’s actions also are signs, on an equal footing with the signs expressed vocally by A.

So Saussure had to be demoted. Under Bloomfield’s leadership, linguistics in America became even more adamantly segregationalist than the European variety. For the Geneva school, the speech circuit had always included a conceptual component. But for Bloomfield and his followers the only speech phenomena which the linguist could deal with scientifically were those physically present in the articulation of a vocal utterance. Concepts or meanings were not present in this sense, and thus were excluded.
