This book is worth reading if only for the first essay, in which Chomsky notes that a sentence's structure undergoes some sort of transformative process that gives it a pregnant meaning for its utterer or whomever hears the sentence. After a brief conversation of some of the implications of this idea, he descends into pedantry.
