Hi,

It’s great to be here and thanks to our instructor, Mr.Rashid ,to persuade us to join the blog. We’ll keep writing inshallah.

Well, to define Grammar is difficult but no harm to try!

“Grammar is a tool to generate sentences in writing, not in speech or one can make infinite sentences(patterns) out of finite words”

    Nice to see you and your Grammar definition Zia Sahib.
    Is it not surprising that we discussed both aspects prescriptive and descriptive at class room. And you are denying the “speech” level of sentence making??
    As far as I can understand your statement it simply means “There is no grammar for speech”.
    Could you explain what were the reasons for this opinion.
    Regards
    Muhammad Shakir
