The Linguistic Society of America will present the 2013 Leonard Bloomfield Book Award to HSU Anthropology Professor Victor Golla 4 p.m. March 8 in the Behavioral & Social Sciences Building, Room 310.
Golla’s book, “California Indian Languages” (University of California Press, 2011), is the fourteenth publication to receive the Bloomfield award since its creation in 1990.
The award is granted to the foremost volume that contributes to the understanding of language and linguistics, through its “exemplary scholarship, enduring value, novelty, empirical import, conceptual significance, and clarity.”
In announcing the award to Golla, the selection committee called “California Indian,” a remarkable piece of documentary linguistics, and “the reference of first resort” for neophytes and experts on indigenous California languages.
The award commemorates the eminent linguist Leonard Bloomfield, a founding member of the LSA and the author of “Language” (1934), one of the most influential books in American structural linguistics.
