Rules of Language.
Pinker, Stephen
Science, v253 n5019 p530-35 Aug 2 1991
Focuses on a single rule of grammar to produce evidence of a memory system for language acquisition and processing that is modular; independent of real-world meaning; unaffected by frequency and similarity; sensitive to formal distinctions; more sophisticated than the explicitly-taught rules it subsumes; developed independently of ambient input; and arranged by principles not exclusively learned.
