Ducrot and Todorov, two eminent French theorists, cover such major trends in the development of modern linguistics as general grammars and Saussurianism, as well as methodological and descriptive concepts. Combining the breadth of a dictionary (800 terms are listed in an alphabetical index) with the depth of an encyclopedia (50 articles provide sustained discussions of specific topics or areas), this is a definitive reference for the study of linguistics, semiotics, poetics, and literary theory. "It is rare to find a translation that surpasses the original; [this] is such a work.

…This new translation, accessible to all American scholars, will become an indispensable research tool for those concerned with the historical development of the sciences of language or with contemporary critical theories". - Choice "All of [the] articles are well-informed and useful and many…are models of lucidity and acumen. …Porter's translation is stylish, accurate, and highly readable…A truly outstanding achievement".
