« We are right to revolt », as Sartre once said.

« Chomsky tried to show that we can study language as an instrument and a tool, trying to describe it’s structure without explicitly referencing the way that tool is used by focusing on the grammar. A sentence doesn’t necessarily need a meaning for itto be grammatically correct : everyone can make the differencebetween «Colourless green ideas sleep furiously» and «*Furiously sleep ideas green colorless.».» (2) (3)
