FodorVsLanguage Rules: 1 The adoption of rules says nothing about its form and content - 2 No one has ever sufficiently described a language, although there has been lots of comparisons: with recipes, logical rules, rules of a game, dancing rules, etc. - 3 a comparison can not explain itself - hence the comparison to a linguistic rule would have to specify exactly to which characteristics of the supposed rule it refers.
