Grammar gives language rules. The word stems from the Greek noun for letter or mark (αράμμα). And that derives from the Greek verb for writing (αράφω), which is the source of our English word graph. Grammar means, more generally, rules for art and science, as in the title of a book in my artist father’s library, The Grammar of Ornament (Jones, 1856).
