  Reminiscences by Pike on Early American Anthropological Linguistics
In the summer of 1937, I studied with Sapir at the Linguistics Institute of the Linguistic Society of America being held at the University of Michigan.
One linguist told me that Bloomfield was living in his home for the summer, but had instructed him not to invite visitors.
While this was good for anthropological linguistics—all linguistics is anthropological, by the way—it was unsettling for me personally because I came out of the Bloomfieldian descriptive linguistics school, and especially because the transformational revolution shoved my own tagmemics theory to the back-burner.

Chomsky's theoretical orientation took linguists away from the descriptive study of phonology and morphology and focused activity on syntax as the central formal structure of language.

Linguistics is an exciting field, not only because of its own achievements, but also because of its contributions to other fields.
Anthropological linguistics deals with the relationship between language and culture; also it involves the study of little-known languages in their cultural setting.
