This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Oct 22, Alex Lee rated it it was amazing Shelves: With this, Hjelmslev seeks to provide a procedural view of linguistic generation.
He provides a two tier distinction between expression and content, as two independent algebras that can shift. However much language shares this formulation of form and content, Hjelmslev points out that the two are not mutually exclusive; they shift around their own logics but coexist with the same glossemes. Much of what makes this book so confusing is that Hjelmslev seems unable to concisely characterize what he With this, Hjelmslev seeks to provide a procedural view of linguistic generation.
Much of what makes this book so confusing is that Hjelmslev seems unable to concisely characterize what he wants to express. He gives plenty of examples, but the logic of his day was not as refined as it is now.
Hjelmslev is after a formalism of expressing procedure. The relations inherent within language and all semiotic systems he sees as a generative plane of its own logical shifts. This logic is transformative but lacking “substance” since there is no rigid signification that provides an absolutely stable point.
Instead, the shifts inherent within linguistic transformation occur on their own paradigmatic plane. These relations are positional concurrences that link glossemes at a metasemiotic level. Hjelmslev sees language as being the key to unlocking all logics, although each language and non-language system would contain languxge own logic.
This approach, Hjelmslev predicts, operates on its own inherent plane but has these metasemiotic kinds of organizations inherent to each domain.
Yet he doesn’t see each metasemiotic domain has having its own inherent truth; he finds their shifts and transformations to be based off contextual hooks that are shaped by other logics from other domains. In this way, Hjelmslev hints at but doesn’t talk about the greater linguistic context by which lannguage systems formulate as responses to their outside.

While Hjelmslev wasn’t really followed in his time, he did influence Deleuze and Guattari to a great degree. His approach is interesting but this book needs some larger explication. I look forward to exploring other works of his, although they are difficult to find. Jan 26, Fran Globlek rated it really liked it.
Actually very in depth despite being a prolegomena. Outlining a description of language with relations of words to each others, functions, functives etc. Hjelmslev wants to avoid using terms such as ‘the genitive case’ because the same case is used in different contexts in different languages.
His goal is to be able to linguistically analyze any piece of written language with a logical method.

Semiotics has taken a great many concepts from him, some of which were theorized by Ferdinand de Saussure and then refined by Hjelmslev, including semiotics, expression, content, form, substance and usage.
To these he added certain concepts specific to glossematics, such as neutral termcomplex termconnotative semioticmetasemiotic, norm, fheory matter or text. His work is not easy to understand, and this is due as much to the unstable editorial and philological context as it is to the highly abstract nature of the theory and the formalized presentation of his writings.
