Chomskyana Linguica

On 6 March, my blog pointed to a piece critical of Naom Chomsky — an odd quirky piece that gave rise to some interesting correspondence, among them a poem by Rochelle Owens. Rochelle clearly went to town, for she has added a second part, and you can read here on the New Verse News blog. Here’s the opening section of part I (which you can read in full here):

invited to the house the house of the famous American
linguist Noam Chomsky I was at a Chomsky dinner party
