Where can I find the English Grammar?

I am doing a project for my Professional Development in Computer Science class and I am doing a program that involves marking up the parts of speech of the natural language (English in this case), but I was having problems finding a complete English grammar. I was wanting a grammar in the Chomskian form that shows the breakdown of a sentence into NP (noun phrase) and VP (verb phrase) and so on and so forth. I have only been able to find fragments of it, and not an entire grammar. The fragments contain part, but leave out parts like composite nouns and prepositional phrases. If anybody has an idea where I can find this or have a book they could refer me to, that would be tremendously appreciated. Thanks.
