Goldsmith on Harris

John Goldsmith has posted on his web site at Chicago a long and thoughtful review of "The Legacy of Zellig Harris: Language and information into the 21st century. Volume 1: Philosophy of science, syntax and semantics".

It's too bad that John Benjamins has priced these volumes so high, as many of the papers in them are accessible to an interested lay audience. One that we've mentioned here is Fernando Pereira's paper "Formal grammar and information theory: together again" (from Volume 2).
