The American linguist Noam Chomsky revolutionized
the theory of syntax by formulating this completely new
approach. Chomsky defined a language as an infinite set
of grammatical sentences. According to him, a grammar
is a finite set of rules generating the grammatical
sentences. The grammar must be explicit and projective.
It describes the competence of an ideal native speaker
and ignores performance, the actual utterances.
This last point, in particular, caused criticism:
"Chomskyans" tend to acknowledge only those examples
of a language that fit into their TGG, disregarding
everyday language. This "idealism" thus neglects many
non-grammatical phenomena of the language.
