The first Chomsky I had to put down. I think this piece is meant for PhD linguists who care about super intellectual, nerd impedimenta. With yawning sentences like, "Suppose X and Y are merged, and neither is part of the other, as in combining read with that book to form the syntactic object corresponding to 'read that book'." I did way too many drugs in the 80's to comprehend this sentence. Or mayhap not enough. I think I'll stick to his rants on anarchy, Manufacturing Consent and true histories with Howard Zinn.
