This research discusses Chomsky's Linguistic Theory: its nature and its relation to Arabic grammar. It focuses on one of the most famous and important theories in linguistics in general, particularly in Arabic grammar. This theory has become well known after its translation and the distribution of Chomsky's thoughts among Arab people and scientists. This research aims to answer two significant questions on this theory: What is the nature of this theory? What is its relation to Arabic grammar?

This part is covered through reporting the theory's founder, concept, originality and development of the theory, theory's terms, basis, and analysis methods according to Chomsky. It also covers the difference between Chomsky's theory and descriptive method, importance of the theory in Arabic grammar study and Chomsky's theory deficiencies. The second subject handles Chomsky's theory relationship to Arabic grammar as it influences his theory, along with the transformation rules of Arabic grammar, reasons of transformation rules existence in Arabic grammar, results of transformation rules existence in Arabic grammar and the application of transformation theory rules in Arabic language structures analysis. It could be concluded that transformational grammar theory is an incomplete theory that we cannot fully apply to our grammatical curricula. In addition, Arabic grammar could not be described as being transformational or descriptive grammar yet; it mixes the two types since Arabic language has its characteristics that are not found in other languages. 2 ‫بوجليع‬ ‫عبدهللا‬ ‫بن‬ ‫صالح‬ ( . 2020 .) ‫العربي‬ ‫بالنحو‬ ‫وصلتها‬ ‫حقيقتها‬ ‫اللغوية:‬ ‫تشومسكي‬ ‫نظرية‬ ‫واإلدارية،‬ ‫اإلنسانية‬ ‫العلوم‬ ‫فرع‬ ‫فيصل،‬ ‫امللك‬ ‫لجامعة‬ ‫العلمية‬ ‫املجلة‬ . ‫الطباعة)‬ ‫(بانتظار‬ ‫العدد‬ ‫الطباعة)،‬ ‫(بانتظار‬ ‫املجلد‬ ‫بوجليع‬ ‫عبدهللا‬ ‫بن‬ ‫صالح‬ ( . 2020 .) ‫العربي‬ ‫بالنحو‬ ‫وصلتها‬ ‫حقيقتها‬ ‫اللغوية:‬ ‫تشومسكي‬ ‫نظرية‬ ‫واإلدارية،‬ ‫اإلنسانية‬ ‫العلوم‬ ‫فرع‬ ‫فيصل،‬ ‫امللك‬ ‫لجامعة‬ ‫العلمية‬ ‫املجلة‬ . ‫الطباعة)‬ ‫(بانتظار‬ ‫العدد‬ ‫الطباعة)،‬ ‫(بانتظار‬ ‫املجلد‬ ‫بوجليع‬ ‫عبدهللا‬ ‫بن‬ ‫صالح‬ ( . 2020 .) ‫العربي‬ ‫بالنحو‬ ‫وصلتها‬ ‫حقيقتها‬ ‫اللغوية:‬ ‫تشومسكي‬ ‫نظرية‬ ‫واإلدارية،‬ ‫اإلنسانية‬ ‫العلوم‬ ‫فرع‬ ‫فيصل،‬ ‫امللك‬ ‫لجامعة‬ ‫العلمية‬ ‫املجلة‬ . ‫الطباعة)‬ ‫(بانتظار‬ ‫العدد‬ ‫الطباعة)،‬ ‫(بانتظار‬ ‫املجلد‬ 9 ‫بوجليع‬ ‫عبدهللا‬ ‫بن‬ ‫صالح‬ ( . 2020 .) ‫العربي‬ ‫بالنحو‬ ‫وصلتها‬ ‫حقيقتها‬ ‫اللغوية:‬ ‫تشومسكي‬ ‫نظرية‬ ‫واإلدارية،‬ ‫اإلنسانية‬ ‫العلوم‬ ‫فرع‬ ‫فيصل،‬ ‫امللك‬ ‫لجامعة‬ ‫العلمية‬ ‫املجلة‬ . ‫الطباعة)‬ ‫(بانتظار‬ ‫العدد‬ ‫الطباعة)،‬ ‫(بانتظار‬ ‫املجلد‬ ‫بوجليع‬ ‫عبدهللا‬ ‫بن‬ ‫صالح‬ ( . 2020 .) ‫العربي‬ ‫بالنحو‬ ‫وصلتها‬ ‫حقيقتها‬ ‫اللغوية:‬ ‫تشومسكي‬ ‫نظرية‬ ‫واإلدارية،‬ ‫اإلنسانية‬ ‫العلوم‬ ‫فرع‬ ‫فيصل،‬ ‫امللك‬ ‫لجامعة‬ ‫العلمية‬ ‫املجلة‬ . ‫الطباعة)‬ ‫(بانتظار‬ ‫العدد‬ ‫الطباعة)،‬ ‫(بانتظار‬ ‫املجلد‬
