Syntax and Generative Grammar

These slides present a very brief introduction of generative grammar and sentence analysis using phrase structure grammar. The basic concepts of Transformation Generative Grammar (TGG) e.g. Deep Structure, Surface Structure, Generation, Unlimited Sentence and Limited Rules etc. are discussed. Additionally an introduction on Transformational Rules is provided in last 2 or 3 slides. These slides may be a good idea for a new comer to linguistics. Study of Language by George Yule is mainly used for the preparation of these slides.
