Beschreibung

This book is based on a dissertation which looks at the Chomskyan paradigm from a bird's eye perspective, and critiques it in light of Popperian meta-theory, which advocates the empirical method of hypothesis testing. It is systematically shown here that the various arguments in favour of Nativism fail in its different forms, thereby paving the way for a new era in linguistic theory - one that does not look at the world through the blinkers of Chomskyan Nativism.
