In answer yes and no.
Language is a compilation of a group of sounds that transfer information from one human being to another. Word order doesn't mean diddly squat if a meaning is successfully transferred.
Noam Chomsky - and all others with an egoficial need to pontificate - diddle in their own squat.
Language is not a con-job. Language defines our Culture and Culture is Evolution's way of keeping us going forth. Or not.
Don't you think?
