Grammar - what is it?
Grammar is the system and structure of a language and has three main components:
- Syntax - the arrangement of words and phrases - how the sentence works.
- Morphology - the structure and formation of the words.
- Semantics - the meanings of words.
Most people can spot an ungrammatical sentence when they see one. In this test the skill is to look at the details of each of the options - you need to be exact in this.
