Noam Chomsky (1928 - .)
Chomsky was born in Philadelphia, America. He is Institute Professor Emeritus of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He gained his doctorate in linguistics from the University of Pennsylvania in 1955. Chomsky has contributed significantly to the field of theoretical linguistics. He elaborated a theory called transformational-generative grammar, composed of two types of rules: phrase-structure rules and transformational rules, that allows language to be analysed scientifically His work has contributed significantly to compiler theory and natural language parsers. Chomsky's work is relevant to the UML where natural language requirements are transformed to UML diagrams and then into programming code and finally into a set executable instructions.
