    American scholar Noam Chomsky has been discharged from a hospital in São Paulo, Brazil, after receiving stroke-related treatment.

    In a Tuesday statement, the Beneficência Portuguesa hospital in São Paulo disclosed that Chomsky was discharged to continue his treatment at home.

    The 95-year-old linguist was recently rushed to the hospital, a year after he suffered a stroke that left him unable to speak and paralysed on the right side of his body, AFP reported, quoting Brazilian newspaper *Folha de São Paulo*.

    Media reports of Chomsky’s death trended on X on Tuesday.

    His wife, Valeria Wasserman Chomsky, dismissed the reports as “untrue”, the Associated Press reported.

    The couple have lived in Brazil since 2015.

    Often called “the father of modern linguistics”, Chomsky is a central figure in modern intellectual thought. His work has had a profound influence on cognitive science, psychology, and artificial intelligence by emphasising the role of innate cognitive structures.

    Beyond academia, Chomsky is also a leading political activist and critic, known for his incisive analyses of media, propaganda and US foreign policy.
