  • Conjunction (grammar)
    In grammar, a conjunction (abbreviated CONJ or CNJ) is a part of speech that connects words, sentences, phrases, or clauses.
  • Formal grammar
    In formal language theory, a grammar (when the context is not given, often called a formal grammar for clarity) is a set of production rules for strings in a formal language.
  • Grammar
    In linguistics, grammar is the set of structural rules governing the composition of clauses, phrases, and words in any given natural language.
  • Noun
    A noun (from Latin nōmen, literally meaning "name") is a word that functions as the name of some specific thing or set of things, such as living creatures, objects, places, actions, qualities, states of existence, or ideas.
  • Pronoun
    (This article is about the part of speech. For the publishing platform, see Pronoun (publishing platform).) In linguistics and grammar, a pronoun (abbreviated PRO) is a word that substitutes for a noun or noun phrase.
  • Reduplication
    Reduplication in linguistics is a morphological process in which the root or stem of a word (or part of it) or even the whole word is repeated exactly or with a slight change.
  • Semantics
    Semantics (from Ancient Greek: σημαντικός sēmantikos, "significant") is primarily the linguistic, and also philosophical study of meaning—in language, programming languages, formal logics, and semiotics.
  • Generative grammar
    Generative grammar is a linguistic theory that considers grammar to be a system of rules that is intended to generate exactly those combinations of words which form grammatical sentences in a given language.
  • Question
    A question is a linguistic expression used to make a request for information, or the request made using such an expression.
  • Solecism
    In traditional grammar, a solecism is a phrase that transgresses the rules of grammar.
  • Supine
    In grammar, a supine is a form of verbal noun used in some languages.
  • Case grammar
    Case grammar is a system of linguistic analysis, focusing on the link between the valence, or number of subjects, objects, etc.
  • Self-reference
    Self-reference occurs in natural or formal languages when a sentence, idea or formula refers to itself.
  • Apposition
    Apposition is a grammatical construction in which two elements, normally noun phrases, are placed side by side, with one element serving to identify the other in a different way.
  • Plurale tantum
    A plurale tantum (Latin for "plural only", plural form: pluralia tantum) is a noun that appears only in the plural form and does not have a singular variant for referring to a single object.
  • Production (computer science)
    A production or production rule in computer science is a rewrite rule specifying a symbol substitution that can be recursively performed to generate new symbol sequences.
  • Sequence of tenses
    Sequence of tenses (known in Latin as consecutio temporum, and also known as agreement of tenses, succession of tenses and tense harmony) is a set of grammatical rules of a particular language, governing the agreement between the tenses of verbs in related clauses or sentences.
  • Immediate constituent analysis
    In linguistics, immediate constituent analysis or IC analysis is a method of sentence analysis that was first mentioned by Leonard Bloomfield and developed further by Rulon Wells.
  • Principal parts
    In language learning, the principal parts of a verb are those forms that a student must memorize in order to be able to conjugate the verb through all its forms.
  • National Grammar Day
    National Grammar Day is observed in the United States on March 4.
  • Constraint-based grammar
    Constraint-based grammars can perhaps be best understood in contrast to generative grammars.
