About the Author:

Frederick J. Newmeyer is Howard and Frances Nostrand Professor of Linguistics at the University of Washington in Seattle where he has taught since 1969. He was Secretary-Treasurer of the Linguistic Society of America from 1989 to 1993 and its President in 2002. He specializes in syntax and the
history of linguistics and in his current research program seeks to synthesize the results of formal and functional linguistics. He is the author of the books English Aspectual Verbs (1975), Linguistic Theory in America (1980), Grammatical Theory: Its Limits and its Possibilities (1983), The
Politics of Linguistics (1986), Generative Linguistics: Historical Perspective (1996), and Language Form and Language Function (1998). He was also editor of the four-volume compilation Linguistics: The Cambridge Survey (1988).

Review:

"With the publication of the Second Edition of Linguistic Theory in America, Frederick Newmeyer continues to offer the field one of its clearest and most valuable explications. This volume's comprehensive coverage reviews the literature and places it within the dual perspective of the development of linguistic theory and the development of the academic field of linguistics."
