Abstract

[automatically translated] (Abstract) The notions of "linguistic invariant" and "universal language" are at the root of many unresolved tensions in the epistemological reflection of many linguists and philosophers of language. The main reasons for these tensions are mainly due to some criticisms formulated as: 1) the notion of linguistic invariant is automatically reduced to the notion of a universal language. Invariants with which the linguist works are usually invariant "local" ie solely generalizable operational schemes to specific groups of historical-natural languages; 2) there is no doubt of the invariants that are universal, but they are identity issues ranging subjected to continuous controls and constant revisions; 3) nor the notion of linguistic invariant nor that of universal language are clear enough to be reduced to notions uniquely determined. There are different theories of invariants and different theories of universals; 4) any differences between the two concepts are justified (and renegotiated) as a function of these different theories. The book, in the light of these issues evidence, shows how the two being is susceptible of different interpretations that are the source of alternative solutions to the problem of the relationship between language diversity and homogeneity of language.
