This list has 350 subscribers, of whom, afaik, exactly 1.5
are Chomskyan believers: Matt and Marcus (who counts as 0.5).
Of the professional linguists I have had as colleagues (in
the same department) in the last 10 years, 0 out of 16 were
Chomskyan believers. It may be the unbelievers who feel
lonely, but it is the believers who are lonely.
