This great photograph accompanies an article in today’s Guardian about the ex-missionary and linguist, Daniel Everett, and his experiences with an Amazonian tribe, as a result of which he’s had probelms not only with God, and his family, but also with Chomsky. It’s a fascinating article, whether you’re interested in God or Chomsky – united, if nowhere else, by their notions of universality – and Everett’s book looks well worth reading too.

You need to read the article to get the title.

    I think recursion isn’t correctly explained in the article though. The example it uses is not an instance of recursion.
