Subject:  Chomsky on Linguistic Imperialism

Hi all,

As I was reading Phillipson on Linguistic Imperialism, and
Negroponte's idead that the net as a medium of linguistic imperialism
is absurd, I was wondering if Chomsky (in his role as a philosopher,
intellectual, or linguist) has taken sides on this issue, or has
expressed his opinion. Has he manifested any support for/opposition
against the concept of linguistic imperialism? Or has he expressed any
ideas on the matter?

I have tried different searches on the net, and on several archives
(including this list), but I don't seem to come up with the right
search string. Could anyone shed any light on this (Chomsky and his
position on linguistic imperialism)?

Thanks in advance,

Roberto Perez

I would like to search the recent usage of a compound adjective, both
in pre-nominal position (with a particular noun) and predicatively.
What's the best resource to use?  Thanks.
