Grammar is a set of rules of any language that we speak or study. Knowledge of basic grammar is necessary so as to know any language well. Grammar governs the formation of sentences, words and phrases and words in any language. Grammar is accompanied with morphology, phonology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics. Grammar precision is mandatory to excel in written as well as verbal language. In the words of Jack Lynch, “Arguments over grammar and style are often as fierce as those over IBM versus Mac, and as fruitless as Coke versus Pepsi and boxers versus briefs’.
Grammar rules are taught to all and sundry. Being correct at grammar is not possible for everyone. It needs revision of all grammar rules, tenses, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, nouns. In the words of Louis Aragon, “I demand that my books be judged with utmost severity, by knowledgeable people who know the rules of grammar and of logic, and who will seek beneath the footsteps of my commas, the lice of my thought in the head of my style.”
