Grammar and Punctuation

Grammar refers to the rules or structure of a language and how elements such as words and sentences can be combined and interpreted (Britannica). Parts of grammar in English include nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs. Using grammar correctly in your writing and speaking makes it easier for you to communicate your ideas clearly to others.

Grammar works alongside punctuation to keep ideas flowing smoothly, and to separate different ideas from each other. Punctuation is used in writing to indicate things like tones and pauses. If you try to read something without any punctuation, you will see how much harder it is to understand!
