Abstract: Jean-Marie Zemb’s philosophical grammar intends to serve epistemological goals and to build a linguistic science that is based on observation and explanation and focused on the deep realms of thought. Nourished by the philosophical and linguistic traditions of France and Germany, the two countries in which he was educated, Zemb is one of the essential French linguists concerned with contemporary epistemology. He can be compared to Eugenio Coseriu. His French-German comparative grammars do not propose a ‘system,’ but instead ‘rectify’ the errors inherited from both earlier and contemporary French and German linguistic theories. This article outlines his epistemological approach and discusses several specific examples. Among the key words of his linguistic oeuvre are ‘archi-lexeme,’ ‘meaning quanta,’ ‘thema,’ ‘rhema,’ and ‘phema.’
