"Few people can write on the English language with the authority of Bryan A. Garner. The author of The Chicago Manual of Style's "Grammar and Usage" chapter, Garner explains the vagaries of English with absolute precision and utmost clarity. With The Chicago Guide to Grammar, Usage, and Punctuation, he has written the definitive guide for writers who want their prose to be both memorable and correct. Throughout the book Garner describes standard literary English--the forms that mark writers and speakers as educated users of the language. He also offers historical context for understanding the development of these forms. The section on grammar explains how the canonical parts of speech came to be identified, while the section on syntax covers the nuances of sentence patterns as well as both traditional sentence diagramming and transformational grammar. The usage section provides an unprecedented trove of empirical evidence in the form of Google Ngrams, diagrams that illustrate the changing prevalence of specific terms over decades and even centuries of English literature. Garner also treats punctuation and word formation, and concludes the book with an exhaustive glossary of grammatical terms and a bibliography of suggested further reading and references"--Publisher.… (mais)

Grammar is the cradle of all philosophy.
John of Salisbury (ca. 1120–80)
English is not a subject. English is everything. For us who speak English, English is everything. English is what we say and what we think.
L.A.G. Strong, English for Pleasure (1941)
Nobody who thinks or writes can be above grammar. It is like saying, "I'm a creative genius, I'm above concepts"—which is the attitude of modern artists. If you are "above" grammar, you are "above" concepts; and if you are "above" concepts, you are "above" thought. The fact is that then you are not above, but far below, thought. Therefore, make a religion of grammar.
Ayn Rand, The Art of Nonfiction (1969)
I take the candid approach because it fits my teaching situation. My students understand very well what social status means, so I simply tell them, "If you speak this way, you go in the back door; if you speak this way, you go in the front door." I make it very clear that I neither built the house nor did I designate the doors. In this case, I am merely an agent showing off the real estate. I have the key to the front door, and one the student has the concept of usage levels I have given him the key. The back door is always ajar.
V. Louise Higgins, "Approaching Usage in the Classroom" (1960)

In its usual sense, grammar is the set of rules governing how words are put together in sentences to communicate ideas—or the study of those rules.
