Night School: The Grammar of Discovery

A man who didn't think he was doing enough becomes the touch stone of a whole new branch of knowledge. How and why? Meet Ferdinand de Saussure, the Swiss father of modern linguistics. Derek Irwin from the University of Nottingham (Malaysia Campus) leads us through an introduction to Saussure's A Course in General Linguistics, a work that was put together from the notes of his students.
