Item description for The Real Professor Higgins: The Life and Career of Daniel Jones by Beverley Collins...
This volume presents the first full-scale biography of Daniel Jones. A preeminent scholar, Daniel Jones (1881--1967) was the leading British phonetician of the early twentieth century, and the first linguist to hold a chair at a British university, and he and his colleagues at University College London soon established a reputation worldwide.
This book, richly illustrated with partly unpublished material, traces Jones's life and career, including his contacts with other linguists, and with figures outside the linguistic world, notably Robert Bridges and George Bernard Shaw. Daniel Jones's work is assessed in terms of its historical significance and its current status.
