Du Marsais (1676–1756) continued the tradition of the Port-Royal grammarians. Noam Chomsky has pointed out how important he still is today. Using the study of Latin as an example, Du Marsais demonstrated the importance of a universal grammar from a propaedeutic point of view. Among his many remarks on theory, one can find the first explicit definition of a universal grammar as opposed to the grammar of a single language.
