No facts or theoretical grounds determine any particular size law, or the need for any size law at more an essential (defining) property of NL all. Size sentences than (see Okabe (1980)). Set theories include (2) or Addition of a is it is no of no analogue law complicates the characterization of NLs, and Occam's razor requires that any such complication be justified. Since this is impossible, the sets or graphs of any of (1), required conclusion (3). is that there is no size size law. 2 size (length) laws Since Chomsky's early studies introduced the paradigm of gener- grammar, there have been repeated attempts to support the is no finite bound on NL sentence length, hence no finite bound on the magnitude of NLs.

Despite Dedekind's undenied eminent mathematical standing and accomplishments, the theorem he offered, although interesting, cannot be taken as sound. g. Hilbert (1967: 131) and Fraenkel, Bar-Hillel and Levy (1973: 46), the collection Q is of the sort which yields the set-theoretical paradoxes. Moreover, a key step in the proof is the postulate that if q is an object of thought so is q is an object of thought'. But this amounts to an inductive step, analogous to the Peano postulate that the successor of a number is a number.

And, almost immediately, attention is restricted to sets which are sets of strings, hence sets of finite strings. If then, internal to such assumptions, it is claimed that all finite sets are recursively enumerable, this is equivalent to the true proposition that all finite sets of finite strings are recursively enumerable. But this is quite different from the false claim that every finite set of any type of mathematical object is recursively enumerable, which would mean, for example, that there is a recursive enumeration of the merable is THE RECEIVED POSITION ABOUT NLS 26 singleton set real In size whose only member is the uncountably infinite set of numbers.
