It was published in , after Saussure's death, and is generally regarded as the starting point of structural linguistics , an approach to linguistics that flourished in Europe and the United States in the first half of the 20th century. One of Saussure's translators, Roy Harris , summarized Saussure's contribution to linguistics and the study of language in the following way:. Language is no longer regarded as peripheral to our grasp of the world we live in, but as central to it. Words are not mere vocal labels or communicational adjuncts superimposed upon an already given order of things. They are collective products of social interaction, essential instruments through which human beings constitute and articulate their world.
