Avram Noam Chomsky
Born in 1928, he is also a man of many talents in many different fields. He was a professor at MIT and Columbia University. Today, he still gives lectures regarding linguistics.
He is well known for his development in the field of Language and Acquisition. More specifically, he has contributed largely to the theory of Universal Grammar. This is the idea that every human has a natural ability to develop language skills. This is later debated with opposing views such as Skinner that say language is simply an imitation process.
