Roger's talking about a different level of abstraction, but I've never found these claims remotely persuasive.

It is fun to watch linguists argue, though.

    Hi Folks,____

    Inside our brain information is in parse trees:____


    The parse trees are structured according to a grammar, such as the
    English grammar.____

    When I want to communicate information to you I linearize the parse
    tree and transmit the linearization (i.e., the sentence) to you. You
    receive the sentence and immediately reconstruct the parse tree and
    apply semantics to the parse tree:____


    So information is exchanged by linearizing a parse tree,
    transmitting the sentence, and at the receiving end reconstructing
    the parse tree.____

    This is true for humans as well as for web services: A web service
    has information in a DOM (parse) tree, it linearizes (serializes)
    the DOM tree into an XML string, transmits the XML string, and the
    receiving web service reconstructs the parse tree and then applies
    semantics to it:____
