Linguistics is the one thing he actually knows something about. His theories have been a large influence on computer science as well.
He’s not dead.
The evil seem to live longer.
...the darling of the global anti-imperialist left, Chomsky has faced sustained criticism for whitewashing the genocide committed by the communist Khmer Rouge in Cambodia.
The only reason the bastard lived that long is, it was illegal to kill him. Good riddance to that POS.
He’s not dead.
Yes, for a moment there I was thinking this was an obituary. Ah well, patience.
Recent studies have uncovered that the brain of human neonates displays a typical signature in response to speech sounds even a few hours after birth. This suggests that neuroscience and linguistics converge on the view that, to a large extent, language acquisition arises due to our genetic endowment.

I heard him speak once in the early 1980s. This was shortly after Israel invaded southern Lebanon to go after the PLO. He made various predictions about the dire consequences of the Israeli invasion, none of which materialized as far as I can remember.
This guy is a chaotic, irrational thinker. For a linguist, he can hardly string together rational, coherent thoughts in writing or speaking.
Thats too bad.
“Intellectual” - LOL
Nothing but a two-bit street punk.
While evil lives on, seemingly forever.
they just keep going on and on.....
what a gift to be in America and all he has ever done is condemn us....
Stop with all the gibberish about linguistics, syntax, grammar, transformation, etc. Chumpsky is a red diaper baby garden variety old school communist. Period.
i·ro·ny /ˈīrənē/ noun noun: irony
the expression of one's meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect.
His contributions to linguistics lead to a technical revolution in the computer industry that did more to drive a nail into the coffin of communism and insure that captalism - which he despises - will continue long past his life time inspite of all his efforts.
That is both recursive and ironic.
I have little doubt that it doesn't escape him and that it has driven him nuts!
What the hell are you talking about? I merely stated that I hoped I was reading his obit!
You might want to adjust your meds, buddy!
He will spend the rest of his life trying to put the toothpaste back in the tub!
NET WORTH = $5 million
Meaning he had a net worth greater that 99.25% of the nation's population and 99.95% of the world's population.
Yet he was a bomb throwing Maoist and anarchist.
IOW he was a disciple of Saul Alinsky.
tub = tube.
I’d be dangerous if I could type, spell and speak properly.
see, saw, saw, see ...
