6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Antonio F. Ros on July 6, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Besides its prefiguration of the concept of Universal Grammar, and regardless of its influence on Chomsky, this book still remains an amazing philosophical tour de force on the nature of language. Some passages are simply breath taking.
