    Phrase-structure grammar

    Hello. I am having a problem with a question for my discrete math class.

    What language is generated by the phrase-structure grammar if the prodcutions are S-->S11, S-->λ where S is the start symbol.

    I really don't know where to begin with this one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Could you give an explanation of the notation used? Usually in phase-generated grammar you have the following.

    S = Sentence
    IP = Inflectional phrase (sentence)
    NP = Noun phrase
    N = Noun
    VP = Verb phrase
    V= Verb
    PP = Prepositional phrase
    P = Preposition
    Det = Determiner

    I'm sure this sounds ignorant on my end, but how do I determine that? The problem that I am working on only had that information, nothing else.
