Dear all,

It appears that a very similar article about Chomsky also appeared at the
following site, written by a different author.

January 1999 Agora Newsletter Vol. 5 No.1 

Chomsky Reinvents Himself

"Noam Chomsky who is considered the father of modern linguistics, has
simplified his approach to how humans acquire language and how they work...."
"Despite the change in his theory, Chomsky's ultimate goal is the same, "is
trying to find out how humans really work." (article by Kara Schwartz)"
