Grammar is the set of rules that determines a language’s structure.

It governs the composition of words, phrases and clauses, as well as syntax, the rules, principles and processes for the structure of word order in sentences such as the sequencing of subjects, verbs and objects, as well as punctuation, the marks that are used to separate sentences and their elements, and to clarify meaning.

Grammar skills are a foundation for effective and clear communication, and a valuable tool for every aspect of life. Improper grammar and grammatical errors cause confusion and reflect poorly on the communicator. Correct punctuation for example is the difference between “Let’s eat grandma” and “Let’s eat, Grandma”!
