Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The authors have held to their promise of presenting a broad view to a broad spectrum of potential readers." (Acta Linguistica Hungarica. December 2008)

“Linguist, philosopher and political activist, Noam Chomsky, has spent six decades developing his theory of Universal Grammar, a concept now central to contemporary linguistics. The authors provide a cogent, accessible introduction that situates the still-evolving concept in the broader framework of Chomsky’s work.” (Times Higher Education Supplement
