It uses two contrastive reference points, namely mainstream linguistic theory and the discipline of semiotics. The focus in explicating integrationism is primarily on the founder of integrational linguistics, Roy Harris, not least because of the vigour and clarity with which he has laid out his intellectual position. However the text includes materials and ideas from his students, collaborators or others engaged with integrationism. This work does not pretend to offer a full account of Harris’ own intellectual journey (which includes significant works on topics such as art, writing, history), nor of the writings of integrationists, who have followed a diverse set of trajectories.

Saussure’s Course sets this out very clearly, arguing in effect that if there is to be an autonomous and systematic discipline devoted to the study of language, then it must frame its object of study in a particular way.

They are relatively self-contained, and might be read selectively or in a different order. Each section includes a Case Studies and Questions for Reflection sub-section.
