Paul Kiparsky's paintings in linguistics has been wide-ranging and basic. His contributions as a student and instructor have remodeled almost each subfield of up to date linguistics, from generative phonology to poetic concept. This number of essays at the word--the primary entity of language--by Kiparsky's colleagues, scholars, and academics displays the distinct concentration of his personal consciousness and his impact within the box. because the editors of the amount notice, Kiparsky ways phrases a lot as a botanist ways crops, interested both through their attractiveness, their constitution, and their evolution. The essays during this quantity replicate those a number of views. The participants speak about phonology, morphology, syntax and semantics touching on the formal composition of the be aware; old linguistic advancements emphasizing the word's simultaneous idiosyncratic personality and participation in a method; and metrical and poetic varieties exhibiting the importance of Kiparsky's rules for literary concept. jointly they enhance the overarching concept that the character of the be aware isn't without delay observable yet still inferable.
