Eugenio Coseriu has died on Saturday, September 7th at the age of 81
Coseriu was one of the most important linguists of the 20th
century. Through his important work, he contributed to a
wide range of subjects: semantics, syntax, translation theory,
variational linguistics, text linguistics, historical linguistics, the
history of linguistics as a discipline, etc. An immense theoretical
and an impressing, in many cases native-like knowledge of all the
Romance languages, Latin and Greek, the Slavic languages, the Germanic
languages and several other languages such as Japanese allowed him to
offer new insights into functional aspects of these languages -- above
all the Romance languages -- and to discover and demonstrate by strong
empirical evidence many structural and typological characteristics.
His work has been distinguished with more then 40 titles of a Doctor
h.c. and honorific titles of many academies and institutions, among
others, of the Linguistic Society of America, the Linguistic Circle of
New York, the Sociйtй de Linguistique Romane etc.
Coseriu was born in
1921 in Romania (city of Balti - today in the Rep. of Moldova) and studied linguistics and philosophy in Romania (Iasi)and
in Rome. After leaving Romania in 1940, where his poems and short
stories were considered as testimony of a new and promising talent for
literature, he worked, in Italy, as translator and art critic and
wrote a thesis in philosophy and another one in Romance philology. In
1951, he went to Montevideo/Uruguay, where during several years of
very intense creative work some of his most important works were
published (some of his works from these days, such as a large
monograph on the theory of proper names, are still unpublished). In
1963, after several stages at different European universities, he
accepted the chair of Romance linguistics at the University of
Tьbingen/Germany, where he lived and worked until his death.
