Description

This title argues that Noam Chomsky's Minimalist Program is deeply flawed. Seuren points to the original acrimonious split in the 1960s and 1970s between Chomsky's generative grammar and the alternative generative semantics proposed by his followers, and argues that the latter theory was sounder and unfairly suppressed.show more

Review quote

"The book is really excellent, I think: vitally needed, eminently readable, and right on the mark with its comprehensive and incisive critique of the most influential confidence trick in the history of modern linguistics."show more
