a duelog on the cognitive relevance of generative syntax

This USED TO BE a verbatim report of a dialogue between a colleague (a generative syntactician) and myself (an experimental epistemologist). The debate has been sparked by my remark concerning the cognitive (ir)relevance of a conference on generative syntax.

THE TEXT OF THE EXCHANGE HAS BEEN REMOVED by my colleague's request.
