what is generative grammar ?
For any given language, if you have a list of grammatical rules that is so complete that you can say, using that list of rules alone, that any given sentence (among the infinity of possible sentences) is grammatical (or not), then you have a generative grammar for that language. In another sense, generative grammar is the attempt to construct such a list of rules.
