  1. I searched Google for firthian linguistics, and these are the results:
    http://www.google.com/search?q=firthian+linguistics&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-SearchBox&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=ie7&rlz=1I7SUNA

    All those JSTOR entries require membership or a purchase. There are others in here that are in online bookstores: Amazon, Alibris, and others. The article on British linguistics is a history of the study.

    This is a bit better:
    http://www.answers.com/topic/j-r-firth
    Scroll down and read several sections, especially the section under J. R. Firth. Also be sure to click on links and read further information about him and anyone influenced by him.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._R._Firth
    This is a little better. Be sure to read the article in the External link section, too.

    Tough subject!

  3. There's just not that much out there about this -- so I guess it's best to study HIM and see what that yields.
