    I have changed “social critic and political activist” to “political critic and activist”.

    Then I added missing pointer to his personal webpage and his institute page at University of Arizona.

    Also added link to the Wikipedia page, though this is touching territory on which Wikipedia has been compromised and can’t be used as a source.

    “social critic and political activist” to “political critic and activist”

    If we adhere to the wikipedia definition of social criticism it is I think no question even at a rough glance that Chomsky belongs to social critics,

    Social criticism is a form of academic or journalistic criticism focusing on social issues in contemporary society, in particular with respect to perceived injustices and power relations in general.

    This is more of less majority of his non-scientific works/interviews about.

    Sure, please feel free to add “social critic” back in. To me the previous wording seemed to downplay the thrust of the criticism, but then probably better to expand on that.

    I agree with your point, in fact I was intuitively having similar picture of why it may be strange.

    Often technical or customary meaning of phrases in human-related sciences (social, political, humanities etc.) are not what we would expect by phrase etymology and one does not know if it is better to confirm or not (may depend on audience).

    Another remarkable example of unexpected phrase related to the circle of entries about linguistics, semantics etc. is the notion of “general semantics” wikipedia which is not what one thinks it is unless one knows what it means (at the worthy side of the coin it is about the fact that the human basic at perception depends on human state of the mind and body, even starting at elementary senses, so it is about “evaluation” by the senses of the world around us and making it less alienated). It is neither about semantics nor it is general in expected cross-scientific sense, though there is some vague relation. Yet another unexpected example is “phenomenology” in philosophical sense.

  1. adding Noam Chomsky’s recent papers on Hopf algebras in generative linguistics:
