Syntactic Structures Chomsky, Noam

What Copernicus’ On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres did for cosmology or Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise did for chemistry, Chomsky’s Syntactic Structures has done for linguistics. This seminal text finally placed the field within the purview of the scientific method. Using a derivable axiomatic system, Chomsky demonstrates that an internal structure of language is no longer an unsubstantiated philosophy of mind.
