In linguistics, generative grammar is grammar (the set of language rules) that indicates the structure and interpretation of sentences that native speakers of a language accept as belonging to their language.

Adopting the term generative from mathematics, linguist Noam Chomsky introduced the concept of generative grammar in the : Richard Nordquist. In the late 20th century, the general view of generative syntax was that it made claims about the innate universal grammar, and that by investigating the principles and parameters of grammar, it did three things simultaneously: (i) explain the possibility of language acquisition despite the poverty of the stimulus, (ii) explain limits on cross-linguistic diversity, and (iii) provide a.

Chomsky is credited with the creation of the theory of generative grammar, considered to be one of the most significant contributions to the field of linguistics made in the 20th century.

Avram Noam Chomsky is an American linguist, philosopher, political activist, author, and lecturer/5(20). Book Description. This book provides a critical review of the development of generative grammar, both transformational and non-transformational, from the early s to the present, and presents contemporary results in the context of an overall evaluation of recent research in the field.

Generative grammar is the label of the most influential research program in linguistics and related fields in the second half of the twentieth century. Initiated by a short book, Chomsky's Syntactic Structures (), it became one of the driving forces among the disciplines jointly called the cognitive sciences.

The book also has a detailed bibliographical background section and an extensive bibliography which will be a useful source of reference to the primary literature. Although intended principally as a coursebook for students of syntax or English grammar, Transformational Grammar will be invaluable to any reader who needs a straightforward and Author: Andrew Radford.

Transformational grammar, also called Transformational-generative Grammar, a system of language analysis that recognizes the relationship among the various elements of a sentence and among the possible sentences of a language and uses processes or rules (some of which are called transformations) to express these relationships.

For example, transformational grammar relates the active sentence.Generative grammar, a precisely formulated set of rules whose output is all (and only) the sentences of a language—i.e., of the language that it generates.

There are many different kinds of generative grammar, including transformational grammar as developed by Noam Chomsky from the mids. Linguists have disagreed as to which, if any, of these different kinds of generative grammar serves.This is the most comprehensive and current introduction to phonological theory and analysis.
