I'm curious as to what that means ? If what is meant is someone who advocates "Generative Semantics," that is a theory that opposes Chomsky's ideas.

Chomsky, due to his charisma, and high-profile liberal public political views and activities, is something of a bugaboo for many people. That has nothing to do with the discussion of the extent to which the theory of an "innate universal grammar engine" is the critical factor enabling the remarkable velocity of human children acquiring language/grammar.

fyi: Pinker, originally strongly influenced by Chomsky (one of his key mentors), later disagreed with many of his core concepts [^]

I will not respond to any further mentions of your significant other's knee-jerk reactions Smile | :)
