The other day I was digging through some boxes and throwing out some old books (ouch) that I won't ever look at again. I came across a book called "Semantics: Theories of Meaning in Generative Grammar" by Janet Dean Fodor. I never read the whole thing through but it has something to do with machine understanding of natural language. Anyway, I thought it ironic that 'generative grammar' is a big thing with Jeff Bone's description of what he wants to do with the web - especially as it relates to semantics and how his designs are compared to the Semantic Web.
