Quite simply one of the best general introductions to linguistics study as a whole. (Freric Jameson Style)
This book is a masterpiece of theoretical thought. It anticipates the actual achievements of much of what we now call sociolinguistics. The 'dialectic of the sign' and of the verbal sign in particular as it is presented in the book acquires great suggestive value in the light of today's debates about semiotics. (Roman Jakobson)
In this one book a reader can discover the ideas of Bakhtin and his circle about language, not as a conceptual metaphor, but as that aspect of human life which is in fact the subject matter of a cumulative science. Its critical account of the state of linguistic thought in the first decades of the century is all that a sociological or Marxist critique can and should be: not a stereotyped application of received categories, but an attempt to think through from the foundation the consequence of taking social interaction; not the abstract individual speaker, as starting point…Brilliant. (Dell Hymes)
