11.Grammar

Correct use of grammar, or the ordering of words, will help ensure that the reader will correctly interpret who is doing what to whom, and what conditons apply to that.

Grammar is largely learnt, and so is modified by each person's interactions with others. While we are hopefully taught the majority of the correct use of a language's grammar at school, those we associate with will hugely determine how much we continue to use those, or how we modify them.

When talking to some people whose native tongue is not yours, you may have noticed that their words, while being correct translations into your language, will not hang together in a way that makes their meaning clear to you.

This is largely because they are applying the grammatical rules of their native tongue to the translated words, and since different languages use different word ordering, especially with adjectives and adverbs, the result may be difficult to understand.

Grammar is literally the rhythm of a language, and correct usage for the language with which you are communicating will fit in with the rhythm and flow that your readers will be expecting.
