Bloomfield And Harris Speak
At Linguists' Annual Convention

of selection of forms in construction.
Differences exist, he said, simply
because of the choice of forms avail-
able. Given the word "milk," one
may add "fresh" and have "fresh
milk"; or he may add "drink" and
get "drink milk." By the different
selection the speaker produces quite
different results because of the dif-
ferent functions of the words "fresh"
and "drink."
One kind of selection, Professor
Bloomfield continued, is that of gov-
ernment or concord, that is, the
choice of a form that will fit properly
with some other word already there.
If the speaker says "that" he cannot
follow it, for instance, with "boys,"
but must bollow it with "boy."
Selection In English
Selection is less complicated in
English than in many other lan-
guages, it was pointed out. In the
Phillippine Tagalog tongue, for ex-
ample, a speaker who uses a word
as a verb (there are no distinct
verbs), has to choose not only for
tense and mood but also among four
forms corresponding to four different
aspects of an action. Thus with re-
spect to the action of cutting with
a knife, "pumutul" emphasizes the
end of the action, "pinutul" the in-
itiator of the action, "ipinitul" the
instrument of the action, and "pinu-
tulan" the place of the action.
The effect of all these devices in
the language, Professor Blodmfield
concluded, is to produce the box
within the. box, to produce, that is,
units within units, the limits of each
unit being determined by some kind
of closure. One can say "fresh milk"
and then say "nice fresh milk" and
add other adjectives indefinitely, but.
when he uses "this" as in "this nice
fresh milk" he uses a closure which
marks the limit of that unit, or
Supports Theoretical Approach
Professor Harris, the .second speak-
er on the evening program, presented
an argument for a theoretical ap-
proach to linguistic study based up-
on an analysis of what he termed
"linguistic structure" rather than
upon all the various conventionalized
aspects of language. He would ex-
clude meaning as a basis in making
such an analysis.
At the opening session yesterday
afternoon the Greek aspirated per-
fect received the attention of two

speakers. Prof. E. ,H. Sturtevant of
Yale University advanced the theory
that certain hitherto unexplained
Greek aspirated perfects in -pha or
-kha owe the aspiration to Indo-
Hittite perfect endings beginning
with the voiceless laryngeal conso-'
nant. In reply, Prof. Roland G. Kent
of the University of Pennsylvania
contended that other influences may
have caused .the aspiration.
Carriere Speaksj
Prof. Joseph M. Carriere of North-
western University next discussed
change of meaning that has occurred
in Louisiana French. French "em-
barguer," which means to get on
board a ship, has developed in Louis-
iana French the meaning to get on
or into anything, especially a horse
or automobile. French "habitant."
or resident, has come to mean "far-'
mer" in Louisiana French, since only
the land-owners were the permanent
residents in the early French colonies.
Phonograph records of Indian
songs were used by Prof. Charles F.
Voegelin of De Pauw University to
demonstrate certain unique linguistic
changes that occur in Delaware
words when they are employed in
certain ritual songs.

Kleine and Dr. Bethell agreed was
the most common injury sustained
by a soldier on the battlefield.
They cited three advantages of
liquid blood plasma over whole blood
for use in emergency transfusions:
it can keep under ordinary sterile
conditions for long periods of time,
it avoids the necessity of typing pa-
tients and bloods, and is easier to
administer since it can be mixed
with the different types.
Whole blood, they explained, can-
not be stored effectively for more
than 10 days, generally.
Richard P. Swigart, assistant man-
ager of the Red Cross Midwestern
Office, St. Louis, M., and Dr. Raphael
Isaacs, assistant director of the
Simpson Memorial Institute, assisted
in formulating the procedure for the
enlistment of blood donors in Ann
