    [ESL Weblog] Noam Chomsky Talks About Universal Grammar [Video]

    just posted the following entry:

    Noam Chomsky Talks About Universal Grammar [Video]

    In this video, Noam Chomsky talks about language at Google as part of the Authors@Google series.

    In this question and answer session he discusses a number of topics, but the first is about universal grammar in which he provides an in-depth description of how his ideas on universal grammar have evolved over time.

    Another interesting question he answers at the end of the session relates to the effect of email, instant messaging and the like on syntax and grammar (TXT Speak). Hear Chomsky's views on whether this is just a natural part of the evolution of language and how it's affecting our minds.
