Modern English Linguistics showed how transformational grammar developed out of American structuralist morphology and syntax. It then then went on to describe English grammar in some detail using the so-called "extended standard theory" of transformational grammar described in Noam Chomsky's book, Aspects of the Theory of Syntax. Despite considerable changes in Chomsky's ideas in the 1980s and 1990s (as for example, government and binding theory), linguistics textbooks continued to be published well into the 1990s that were still based on the Aspects model.
