It is stated emphatically in the preface of Recherches Structurales, a collection of studies by members of this group 2). The Copenhagen Circle of Linguists do no more than what is required of every scholar: to test a new theory that has been put before them, in order to ascertain its value by trying to apply it to the facts it is made for 3). That their views·of language are influenced by it is natural.

11. See Uldall's attempt at an algebraic description of a non·linguistic field of tbe "humanities", quoted on p. 95 below. PROCESS AND SYSTEM 35 ble to find out where the lines between the various elements of the process are to be drawn? In other words: how can we distinguish the elements from each other? In a spoken text, for instance, there is an endless variety of sounds ~ an unbroken series; the sounds that resemble one another might be said to form together a "class", but there is not only an infinity of sounds in one such a class, there is also an infinity- of such classes so that they could not be arranged but artificially.

This description will be an algebraic notation. 3. The entities are tentatively drawn up into a provisional system. 4. This must be done for as many languages as possible. 5. On the basis of the greatest possible number of algebraic data thus obtained, a calculation is to be made of all relations actually found and theoretically possible. 6. The calculus of these relations is the system, not of a language or of many languages, but the system 01 language. 7. Every particUlar language shall be confronted with this system, and show up its character by the relations it has chosen to realize.
