Difference between European and American linguistics

Postby qwertz » Mon Mar 12, 2012 1:48 pm

Can anyone tell me what the difference is? Supposedly there are different schools.

Is structuralism considered European while generativism American or is the distinction more complicated?

I remember seeing the language philosophers in San Francisco carrying around alot of generative grammer books. Fuck em.
