On Transformational Grammar: An Introduction for Teachers. Monograph Number 11.
Jacobs, Roderick A.
A review of the background of transformational grammar and a discussion of Chomsky's "Syntactic Structures" begin this introduction to the "new" grammar. Following discussions are on the components of a theoretically complete grammar, the main deep structure components (noun phrase, auxiliary, and verb phrase), grammatical relationships, grammatical features, transformations, and embedding. A defense of the explanatory adequacy of the grammar is then offered, and the monograph concludes with a brief survey of recent developments in transformational theory and a short, informal bibliography for teachers.
