Harcourt, Brace & World. Good. 1968. Paperback/staplebound. 015549256x . 8.90 X 5.90 X 0.50 inches; 88 pages .

Synopsis

This is the long-awaited third edition of Chomsky's outstanding collection of essays on language and mind. The first six chapters, originally published in the 1960s, made a groundbreaking contribution to linguistic theory. This new edition complements them with an additional chapter and a new preface, bringing Chomsky's influential approach into the twenty-first century. Chapters 1-6 present Chomsky's early work on the nature and acquisition of language as a genetically endowed, biological system (Universal Grammar), through the rules and principles of which we acquire an internalized knowledge (I-language). Over the past fifty years, this framework has sparked an explosion of inquiry into a wide range of languages, and has yielded some major theoretical questions. The final chapter revisits the key issues, reviewing the 'biolinguistic' approach that has guided Chomsky's work from its origins to the present day, and raising some novel and exciting challenges for the study of language and mind.

About Becker's Books

Tucked away in a sleepy neighborhood just outside the Loop on the West side of Houston, Becker's Books is one of Houston's largest bookstores by inventory, although you wouldn't know it when you pull up. After walking around however, you'll find what you didn't even know you were looking for. May customers leave hours later, smiling in spite of themselves with an armful of books, giving credence to what any J.R.R. Tolkien fans know to be true "not all who wander are lost."
