A classic intro to Linguistics: Ali G interviews Chomsky


I still love this video, 3 minutes and digestably informative. In Quebec "linguistique" seems to mean that you've memorized
  • lots of long proper words, and
  • odd conjunctions and
  • opaque grammar that no one uses

It's very very hard to explain what linguistics is, and why it could be useful to view language in that way...let's let the dynamic duo of Ali G and Chomsky explain it to us!
