Sample text

In short, Rask produced the theory that in Petersen's hands grew into a programme. As far as I know, Rasmus Rask was the first 'Danish linguist to propose a clear distinction between theoretical and applied linguistics. This is, on the one hand, no surprise, since he was our first professional linguist of all. On the other hand, the way in which he delineated the disciplines may still surprise us simply because the words sound so up to date. By theoretical linguistics Rask understands that part of the study of language which discovers and formulates the rules on which applied linguistics is based.

The answer to the question: how come? is simply that: it became. In this way, words are explained as stemming from the earliest attested word form and for the Nordic language area this is normally an Old Icelandic word form. In fact, Rask left parts of a manuscript for an etymological dictionary. As everyone knows, this type of linguistics has been singularly successful. Etymological dictionaries for all the major European languages have been produced, much to the satisfaction of the philologists and the general public.

One source that all of us must plead dependence on is S. Pit Corder. The final paper in this section, by Davies, discusses Corder's seminal influence and shows how relevant much of his thinking still is. The framework for this study of Corder and his associates at Edinburgh is the familiar one of the relationship between theory and practice, and the question of which comes first in applied linguistics, linguistic theory or practical problems such as language teaching. An interesting comparison between North American and British traditions identifies Corder's major significance in both contexts.
