Chomsky Theory of Language Learning Rebutted by the Evidence

Here we have another case surfacing of "mainstream science" theories in the humanities being rebutted because they do not fit the actual evidence. See the Scientific American in Evidence Rebuts Chomsky's Theory of Language Learning. Chomsky is one of most quoted mainstream scientists in our era, but his theories about language learning are simply wrong. Language is WORDS, while grammar is a nice touch, but it has little to do with the way language is naturally learned.
