Beyond Superstructuralism: The Syntagmatic Side of Language

Synopsis

Moving on from the position described in his previous book, Superstructuralism , Richard Harland argues that structuralist and poststructuralist approaches to language are fatally limited by their focus upon single words. Instead he offers the radical alternative of a syntagmatic approach. This shows that the effect of combining words grammatically is more dramatic than any existing theory - European or Anglo-American - has yet recognized. The wide breadth of coverage in the book takes in 'post-Chomskyan ' linguistics, deconstruction, analytic and speech-act views of language. Harland challenges the very foundation of recent literary and language-based theory, opening up a range of novel options for literary criticism, linguistics and philosophy.
