Abstract: The assessment of transformational generative grammar in the present study indicates that it can provide a clue to the inner life of a work of art and can as well lend itself freely to statistics. Both transformations and statistics have helped the present writer to construct a profile of John Updike's style in Rabbit, Run and Rabbit Redux. The findings have revealed that Updike's style is identifiable through the distribution of particular transformations, especially those taking place in the speech of the author's characters.
