Linguistic Field: History of Linguistics
Abstract: This paper (written in the Dutch language) points out that the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Carnap, who later came to the USA, published books about the philosophy of language, and used terms such as 'transformation rules', which were later also used by Chomsky in his philosophy of language. This is seen as evidence that Carnap was a precursor of Chomsky.
