The Language of "X"

Fritinancy brought Lexicon Blog's post Understanding The “X” Factor to my attention through her October Linkfest.

It is a an informative and interesting post; however, I am surprised that a post written by Dr. Will Leben, Lexicon Director of Linguistics, neglected to mention that the letter "X" is used to signify an arbitrary lexical category in Chomsky's X-Bar Theory.
