Abstract

We treat W. D. Whitney's and Ferdinand de Saussure's views of language and discuss their similarities and differences. The two linguists have similar ideas on the following points: 1) social character of language, 2) arbitrariness of language, 3) conception of zero sign, 4)acquisition of language, and 5) relation between linguistics and psychology. On the other hand, they disagree with the following points: 1) relation between signifiés and signifiants and 2) relation between synchrony and diachrony.
