biographical name Ferdinand de 1857-1913 Swiss linguist Saussurean also Saussurian adjective

Britannica Concise

Swiss linguist. Though his only written work appeared while he was still a university student, Saussure became very influential as a teacher, principally at the Univ. of Geneva (1901-13). Two of his students reconstructed lecture notes and other materials as Course in General Linguistics (1916), often considered the starting point of 20h-cent. linguistics. He saw language as a structured system that may be approached both as it exists at a particular time and as it changes over time, and he formalized principles and methods of study for each approach. His concepts may be regarded as the beginning of structuralism.
