Albert Sechehaye

Albert Sechehaye (French: [se..?]; 4 July 1870, Geneva - 2 July 1946, Geneva) was a Swiss linguist. He is known for editing Ferdinand de Saussure's lectures, Course in General Linguistics.


Sechehaye studied at the University of Geneva under Ferdinand de Saussure. From 1893 to 1902 he trained at Göttingen, where he wrote a thesis in German about the French imperfect subjunctive. After that, he taught in Geneva until his death, though not becoming a professor until 1939, when he succeeded his colleague Charles Bally. His wife Marguerite Sechehaye was a psychotherapist and a pioneer in the psychoanalytic treatment of schizophrenics.[1]
