In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the linguistics program at MIT, MIT Working Papers in Linguistics is publishing a collection of the writings of Noam Chomsky entitled Chomsky's Linguistics. The book chronicles some of the most important research in generative linguistics by one of the field's most influential scholars. The eleven papers contained in this volume, which also includes a new foreward by the author and a forward by Howard Lasnik, cover a period of over 35 years of linguistic research. From the seminal investigation of the relationship between syntax and the lexicon in "Remarks on Nominalization" (1970) to the recent theory of syntactic derivation outlined in "On Phases" (2006), the topics covered by these papers provide insight into some of the most longstanding questions in linguistic theory. The works presented in this volume have inspired generations of researchers, and formed the foundation of much work in linguistics today. The book has 720 pages, cloth-bound hardcover, with a glossy jacket.
