Chomsky recuperates at home following hospital discharge in Brazil

Noam Chomsky, the renowned American linguist and intellectual, has been discharged from the Beneficencia Portuguesa Hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

This announcement puts to rest the swirling misinformation on social media platforms about his death. Chomsky will continue his recovery process at his home in Sao Paulo.

Earlier reports on platforms like Jacobin and New Statesman erroneously reported Chomsky’s death, causing a brief surge in his name across social networks.

Steven Pinker, a fellow academic, clarified on Twitter that these reports were inaccurate, citing confirmation from Chomsky’s wife, Valeria Wasserman, that he remains in good health.

Chomsky was hospitalized due to complications related to a stroke he suffered last year, which impacted his speech and right-side mobility. The linguist and his wife have been residents of Sao Paulo since 2015.

Having risen to prominence in the 1950s with his revolutionary theories on innate language acquisition, Chomsky has authored over 100 books addressing diverse issues from Middle Eastern conflicts to U.S. military interventions, labor rights, and environmental concerns. His discharge marks a hopeful continuation of his recovery and intellectual contributions.
