Signs of Writing by Roy Harris Signs of Writing, Paperback (February 2014)

Roy Harris re-examines basic questions about writing that have long been obscured by the traditional assumption that writing is merely a visual substitute for speech. By treating writing as an independent mode of communication, he shows how musical, mathematical and other forms of writing obey the same principles as verbal writing.

Course in General Linguistics by Roy Harris Course in General Linguistics, Paperback (October 2013)

Translation of Cours de linguistique generale.

Rationality and the Literate Mind by Roy Harris Rationality and the Literate Mind, Paperback (May 2013)
