1. Linguist Breakup Lines

    Chomsky (1957): Our relationship is due for a transformation.

    Chomsky (1965): I know everything seems fine on the surface, but deep down we just aren’t right for each other.

    Chomsky and Halle (1968): We just don’t seem to work in the same environment.

    Chomsky (1986): I can see barriers to any future movement for us.

    Greenberg (1963): With overwhelmingly greater than chance frequency you and I do not occur together.

    Labov (1966): You’re out of my class.

    Lakoff (1987): You’re dangerous, it’s like playing with fire.

    Prince and Smolensky (1993): *FAITHFULNESS (from)

    I just feel tense and stressed ‘round you. 

    You’re okay, but you’re always bound to your Auntie Cedant, and she really PRO-vokes me.
