Definition - According to Noam Chomsky, this is the key mental operation that creates the human language faculty. It is the process where two syntactic objects are combined to form a new syntactic object, which in turn can then be used as an input to produce further syntactic objects. It is what allows humans to create infinitely many language utterances.

Notes:
1. It is one of the basic operations of Chomsky's Minimalist Program.
