Travaux du Cercle Linguistique de Prague no. 7. The magnum opus of Nicolay Trubetzkoy (1890-1938), Russian linguist and founder of morphophilology. In this seminal study, the author identified the phoneme as being the smallest distinctive unit within the structure of a given language. This finding would eventually lead to the establishment of phonology as a separate discipline from phonetics. Item #41631
