The science which treats of the principles of language; the study of forms of speech, and their relations to one another; the art concerned with the right use and application of the rules of a language, in speaking or writing.
The art of speaking or writing with correctness or according to established usage; speech considered with regard to the rules of a grammar.
A treatise on the principles of language; a book containing the principles and rules for correctness in speaking or writing.

A generative grammar is a set of rules that determines the form and meaning of words and sentences in a particular language as it is spoken in some community.
the predictable patterns and systems of sounds (or gestures), sequences or words, and assemblages of meaningful elements of any language. These patterns are also called rules. All languages (and dialects) have grammar, and it is this grammar that linguists study and analyze. See also SYSTEMATIC AND RULE-GOVERNED.
the study of classes and functions of words, how words are said, and how words relate in a sentence.
The G word. Once taught only by unimaginative fascists, but now possibly coming back into vogue.
The study of grammar in medieval education included not only the study of the main elements of language but also a study of modes of expression. A student of grammar in the Middle Ages would expect to study prose and poetry, critical theory and literary criticism.

a formal metalanguage using production rules to characterize patterns containing ranked repeated sequences, excursus F ¶4.
a formal language constructed to describe a (natural) language, ¶2-1-5. The psychological object of study contrasts with a f. g. of that object. The f. g. of this book is a generative transformational grammar, which has the elements of a calculus, ¶4-1-2.

the correct way to use words in writing and speech
the formal structure of a language, comprising phonology, morphology, and syntax.
The system of rules by which words are arranged into the structures meaningful in a language.
The field of study dealing with the formal features of a language and the rules that govern their combination, reference and interpretation.
grammar is a pattern that acts a container for a start pattern and any number of named patterns.
the term is generally used to include syntax and morphology but may also be used in a wider sense to include rules of phonology and semantics. A grammar is a collection of linguistic rules which define a language.
a study of the forms and relations of words, and of the rules governing their use in speech and writing.
Branch of linguistics that deals with syntax and morphology, sometimes also phonology and semantics; the abstract system of rules in terms of which mastery of a native language can be explained; a systematic description of the grammatical facts of a language; the study of the classes of words, their inflections (variable parts) and their functions and relations in the sentence; broadly, this study when taken to include that of phonology (the sound system of a language) and sometimes of usage. Grammar is the ancient and imprecise name for the study of language and is today usually taken to include morphology and syntax but not phonetics or semantics.
Grammar is the system of relationships between elements of the sentence that links the ‘sounds' to the ‘meanings'. It is used to refer both to the knowledge of language in the speaker's mind, and to the system as written down in rules, grammar-books and other descriptions. The type of grammar derived from classical languages that is often taught in schools is called traditional grammar and is more concerned with prescribing how native speakers should use language than with describing it. Main areas of grammar are WORD ORDER, GRAMMATICAL MORPHEMES, GRAMMATICAL INFLECTIONS and PHRASE STRUCTURE. See also prescriptive grammar, traditional grammar.

a list of rules, together with a prefix that indicates what input format is being used
a mathematical system for defining a language, as well as a device for giving the sentences in the language a useful structure
an analysis of structure--for example, the structure of language

an object in the JSAPI that controls the recognition process by telling the speaker what words they're expected to say and the patterns in which these words may occur
a notation for describing the syntax of a language
a representation of the language or phrases expected to be used or spoken in a given context

1. The rules by which native speakers generate acceptable sentences in a language. 2. the study or codification of such rules.
Not to be confused with socially correct usage. In order to handle novel sentences, we not only need to access the words stored in our brains but also the patterns of sentences possible in a particular language. These patterns describe not just patterns of words but also patterns of patterns. There are three aspects of grammar: morphology (word forms and endings), syntax (from the Greek "to arrange together" – the ordering of words into clauses and sentences), and phonology (speech sounds and their arrangements). A complete collection of rules is called the mental grammar of the language, or grammar for short. grammar
The study of the structure and features of a language. Grammar usually consists of rules and standards that are to be followed to produce acceptable writing and speaking.
Systems and rules to describe the structure of language, such as word order in sentences, and grammatical markers such as plurals, verb tenses, and pronouns.
The entire set of rules of a language that speakers must consciously or unconsciously learn in order to correctly use the language.
The structure of a language, particularly the way words and phrases are formed and combined to produce sentences. It takes into account the meanings, functions, and organisation of these sentences in the system of the language.
A set of rules that describes the valid sequences of sumbols ("sentences") of a language.
The rules that say how words are combined, arranged and changed to show different meanings.

A list of rules that specify a pattern or acceptable sequence of input symbols. A definition of the form (syntax) of a language. A definition of a language based human interface.
The set of rules that together specify the allowed ways an alphabet can be put together to forms strings of symbols in a given language. See: Alphabet, Language, Syntax.
(1) the system of structural relationships in a language: how words and part of words combine to form sentences. (2) a systematic description of a language. Comprehensive descriptions of the word structure and sentence structure of a language are known as reference grammars, while teaching grammars are descriptions designed specifically for teaching or learning a language.
means the rules governing the structure of a language.
A grammar may be informally thought of the set of words and category symbols in a language, together with the rules governing their combination into sentences. It is, in human terms, what speakers know of their language independent of their ability to use that knowledge. See also Competence Knowledge, Competence/Performance, Syntax.
The system of rules by which words are formed and put together to make sentences.
"Set of rules for ordering vocabulary items. In computer science may be expressed formally (e.g., in a BNF)."
A set of words and phrases that can be recognized by an engine. A grammar object is an OLE COM object that an application uses to control how an engine uses the grammar to recognize speech.
Rules pertaining to the structure of language.
Grammar is the study of rules governing the use of language. The set of rules governing a particular language is the grammar of that language; thus, each language can be said to have its own distinct grammar. Grammar is part of the general study of language called linguistics.
