Abstract [en]

This article describes and analyzes the conceptions of linguistic unity and diversity in three linguistic theorists of the seventeenth century, Georg Stiernhielm (1598-1672), Claudius Salmasius (1588-1653) and Christian Ravius (1613-1677). In their lifetime they enjoyed the reputation as prominent experts in the fields of Germanic, Greek and Semitic language studies, respectively. Alhough they are known to previous linguistic historiography, their innovative linguistic theory in the topic of language classification has so far only attracted limited attention. This article charts their different criteria of the distinction between language and dialect and their conceptualization of the nature of dialectal difference, while considering their conceptual points of agreement and difference.
