Famous quotes containing the word grammar:

    Proverbs, words, and grammar inflections convey the public sense with more purity and precision, than the wisest individual.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I went to a very militantly Republican grammar school and, under its influence, began to revolt against the Establishment, on the simple rule of thumb, highly satisfying to a ten-year-old, that Irish equals good, English equals bad.
    Bernadette Devlin (b. 1947)

    The syntactic component of a grammar must specify, for each sentence, a deep structure that determines its semantic interpretation and a surface structure that determines its phonetic interpretation.
    Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)
