The Chomsky hierarchy or Chomsky-Schützenberger hierarchy is a way of classifying formal grammars into four levels, with the lower numbered levels being more general.
Level 3 grammars require terminators on the right hand side.

Chomsky also describes tensions he personally experienced with Irish Catholics and anti-semitism in the mid 1930s stating "I don't like to say it but I grew up with a kind of visceral fear of Catholics, I knew it was irrational and got over it but it was just the street experience".
Chomsky raised the examples of rapid language acquisition of children, including their quickly developing ability to form grammatical sentences, and the universally creative language use of competent native speakers to highlight the ways in which Skinner's view exemplified underdetermination of theory by evidence.

 Hierarchy - Psychology Wiki   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A hierarchy (in Greek: often used in Geographic studies Ἱεραρχία, it is derived from ἱερός-hieros, sacred, and ἄρχω-arkho, rule) is a system of ranking and organizing things or people, where each element of the system (except for the top element) is subordinate to a single other element.
Most evolutionary biologists assert a hierarchy extending from the level of the specimen (an individual living organism -- say, a single newt), to the species of which it is a member (perhaps the Eastern Newt), outward to further successive levels of genus, family, order, class, phylum, and kingdom.
In linguistics, especially in the work of Noam Chomsky, and of later generative linguistics theories, such as Ray Jackendoff's, words or sentences are often broken down into hierarchies of parts and wholes.

A generation later, the United States and the Soviet Union had become the superpowers of the first truly global system, realizing the expectations of Alexander Herzen and others a century before, though the dimensions of their power were never comparable and both have been declining in their capacity to influence and coerce for some years.

 Cogprints - A hierarchy of languages, logics, and mathematical theories   (Site not responding. Last check: )
We present mathematics from a foundational perspective as a hierarchy in which each tier consists of a language, a logic, and a mathematical theory.
Each tier in the hierarchy subsumes all preceding tiers in the sense that its language, logic, and mathematical theory generalize all preceding languages, logics, and mathematical theories.
The languages of the first four tiers correspond to the languages of the Chomsky hierarchy: in combinatory logic Ix = x gives rise to a regular language; the language generated by S, K in combinatory logic is context-free; first-order logic is context-sensitive; and the typed lambda calculus of type theory is recursively enumerable.

 Roger L. Simon: Chomsky Chump Change
Sure, I agree with Schweizer that Chomsky's hiding his money from the taxman in a revocable family trust is hugely hyprocritical for someone with the intellectual's 'progressive' views.
I've heard Chomsky describe himself as a "libertarian socialist" which I take to mean liberty for him and socialism for the rest of us.
If Chomsky is the world's #1 intellectual today, then it's certainly the case that the status of the public intellectual has declined markedly since the days of Sartre.
