This is the long-awaited third edition of Noam 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. In this new edition they are complemented with two additional chapters 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, and the final two chapters revisit the key issues, raising some novel and exciting challenges for the study of language.


1. Linguistic contributions to the study of mind: past; 2. Linguistic contributions to the study of mind: present; 3. Linguistic contributions to the study of mind: future; 4. Form and meaning in natural languages; 5. The formal nature of language; 6. Linguistics and philosophy; 7. Biolinguistics and the human capacity; 8. Three factors in language design.


Noam Chomsky is Professor of Linguistics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His many books include New Horizons in the Study of Language and Mind (Cambridge University Press, 2000) and On Nature and Language (Cambridge University Press, 2002).
