Wladimir G. Admoni, Grundlagen der Grammatiktheorie. Übersetzt und mit einem Vorwort von Theodor Lewandowski. Heidelberg. Quelle & Meyer, 1971. 136pp. This unpretentious little book by the oustanding Leningrad linguist and Germanist Admoni, 1 deserves to be read and reread by all linguists, particularly the young ones, as it will have an antidotal effect with respect to the multifarious monomethodological current approaches to linguistics, including that of generative transformational grammar.
