It implies the usefulness and feasibility of describing the human language by means of generative grammars Lyons, It also refers to the approach of language analysis based on such types of grammar. Chomsky s approach was a reaction to ljnguistics behaviorist theory of language prevalent lnguistics the time structuralismchampioned by the psychologist Skinner.

For behaviourists, the brain is considered a blank slate with regard to linguistic knowledge; children must be explicitly taught their language by the adults around them in a stimulus response manner, behavior is rewarded when chidren imitate the adults language correctly. Much of human beings linguistic knowledge, Chomsky argued, is abstract and unconscious, but can be brought to conscious awareness by examining speakers usage of such linguistic knowledge.

Children are born with a faculty of language in its Initial State i,e. Language is a human faculty It is part of the human biological endowment thanks to the faculty of language, any speaker of a language is believed to internalize a system of rules in a particular way. It is also our ability to use language.

It is a set of rules constructed in the speakers minds by virtue of language acquisition.

Instead of learning language by imitating those around them, children create their own grammars.

I hurted myself and generate novel forms, neither of which should occur if they learned solely by imitating. Language is highly constrained: All syntactic rules make reference to the internal structure of the sentence known as structure dependency. Syntactic Structures The Standard Theory deals with how semantics should be studied in a linguistics theory. Aspects of the Theory of Syntax The Extended Standard Theory focuses discussion on language universals and universal grammar.

The latest is the Minimalist Program, a further revision of the previous theory. This concerns the question of learning theory and the question of linguistic universals.

In fact, Chomsky and his followers are interested in any data that can reveal the native speaker s tacit knowledge. They seldom use what native speakers actually say; they rely on their own intuition. Finally, Chomsky follows rationalism in philosophy and mentalism in psychology.
