Lady Welby[edit]

Significs and Language: The Articulate Form of Our Expressive and Interpretive Resources
On the Logic of Communication
(Syntactics, Semantics, and Pragmatics)

1. "SIGNIFICS" - OR MENTAL HYGIENE

The Honorable Lady Welby, who was Lady-in-Waiting to Queen Victoria, pioneered a movement, at the turn of the century, to tighten discipline of thought and expression in many fields of human interest, in education, in science, in all forms of mental activity, and to examine in the most critical manner concepts such as "meaning," "significance," "truth," "interpretation," and their bearing on what is commonly called the "value" or "import" of any branch of study and enquiry.[1]

— Colin Cherry (1957) On Human Communication, pp. 219-220

H. G. Wells[edit]

The New Machiavelli
  • ``the Webbs, as 'the Baileys', are unmercifully lampooned as short-sighted, bourgeois manipulators. The Fabian Society, of which Wells was briefly a member (1903-08), fares no better in his estimation.``
