Leonard Bloomfield (April 1, 1887 – April 18, 1949) was an American linguist, whose influence dominated the development of structural linguistics in America between the 1930s and the 1950s. His work helped establish linguistics as an independent scientific discipline. Therefore, all changes are subject to certain rules.

Leonard Bloomfield was born in Chicago in 1887 and died in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1949. He came to linguistics when it was the dilettante preoccupation of a few crow-baited students of literature ; he left it a branch of science. Bloomfield was the son of Sigmund and Carola Buber Bloomfield and the nephew of the Indologist Maurice Bloomfield. The two developed their views in various articles, Weiss also in a book first published in 1925. Of course, this orientation, coupled with his deceptively simple manner of speaking, got Bloomfield into trouble.

The present book is an English version of Laghukaumudi together with comments, references and index. One of the important objects of this version is to explain each term and each process on its first occurance with the fullness of illustration. This edition supplies references so that the student should know the steps the root has taken before it has attained its present form. The book is a valuable contribution to the study of Sanskrit Grammar.

As a former language teacher with a degree in linguistics, I found the book most helpful and encourage others who are interested in how people speak to read this classic.
This book is a true classic, and anyone interested in linguistics and language should have a copy. It should be noted that since it was originally published in the 1930s, some of the information may be out of date, but most of it isn't. The field of linguistics has expanded since then, but this book is still very relevant, especially the parts relating to borrowing, language change, philology, etc. This book is also great in its scope. It's detailed and gives examples, but it reads well and gives a good introduction to a broad field.
Classic book for real language nerds
i really enjoyed the book. It was most useful when I studied Linguistics. Eventhough it was a second hand book, it arrived on time and in excellent conditions.
It's in very good condition when it arrived. I really like it. It is exactly as the picture shows and meets my expectations perfectly.
So what if it was published in 1935? Bloomfield's "Language" was perhaps the first work of linguistics I ever read, and the principles laid down in it are good and enduring. For linguistics, it's even relatively easy to read, which is saying quite a bit. The emphasis on Amerindian languages may date the text for some readers. I've read the book a number of times, and never without marveling at the treasure house of knowledge it contains. If you have even a passing interest in languages and their development, you should read at least some of Bloomfield.
