QUICK LIT BITE OF THE DAY

Generative Grammar-refers to a particular approach to the study of syntax. A generative grammar of a language attempts to give a set of rules that will correctly predict which combinations of words will form grammatical sentences. In most approaches to generative grammar, the rules will also predict the morphology of a sentence.

Generative grammar originates in the work of Noam Chomsky, beginning in the late 1950s. Early versions of Chomsky's theory were called transformational grammar, and this term is still used as a collective term that includes his subsequent theories. Chomsky's current theory is known as the Minimalist Program; which is to seeks to be a mode of inquiry, characterized also by the flexibility of the multiple directions that its minimalism enables. The MP provides the conceptual framework guiding the development of grammatical theory.
