Response to nationalize the fed (Original post)

7. I've long ago forgiven Chomsky for "Structural Linguistics." A brief fad during my early years in

as an English teaching major, plummeting my grades in a class that, to me, turned simple sentence structure into puzzling mathematical equations .In short order, this method completely disappeared. Fifty years later, it seems to have been entirely forgotten. I've rarely ever met anyone beyond that class who's ever heard of it (maybe on Wikipedia). As much as I admire Chomsky otherwise, this is a negative lodged in my brain.
