Born: 1928-12-07
He is credited with the creation of the theory of generative grammar (considered to be the most significant contribution to the field of theoretical linguistics in the 20th century). As well, he is credited with the establishment of the so-called 'Chomsky Hierarchy', a classification of formal languages in terms of their generative power. He was, also, widely known for his political activism and for his criticism of the foreign policy of the United States and other governments.
