Title: QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE ASSESSMENTS OF THE IMPACT OF LINGUISTIC THEORY ON INFORMATION SCIENCE

Abstract: A citation analysis was performed on a subset of the information science literature to determine the impact of linguistic theory on information science. Both quantitative and qualitative measures were employed to show the relationship between the two fields. The overall findings indicate that this portion of the information science literature has made almost no use of linguistic theory. The small number of citations to linguistic theory did show some patterns, indicating that small numbers of citing and cited authors account for most of the activity; that syntax and semantics have occupied more attention from information scientists than other branches of linguistic theory; that information scientists have cited older works over time; and that most of the citations to linguistic theory belong to qualitative "non-use" categories.
