Title: Ignorance of Language
Written By: Michael Devitt
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199250967
Description:

The Chomskian revolution in linguistics gave rise to a new orthodoxy about
mind and language. Michael Devitt throws down a provocative challenge to
that orthodoxy. What is linguistics about? What role should linguistic
intuitions play in constructing grammars? What is innate about language? Is
there a 'language faculty'? These questions are crucial to our developing
understanding of ourselves; Michael Devitt offers refreshingly original
answers.
