Not really... Wittgenstein is crucial to contempory linguism/ philosophy, and a lot of Chomsky's ideas are reactions against the more European ideas. I can't stand Chomsky, personally... Zizeck has written some very damning papers on him which I would recommend. Basically, there's a lot of inconsistencies in Chomsky's attempt to politicise language. Doesn't hold any water over this side of the Atlantic.
