Grammar explains how the language should be structured, using various categories. Number refers to formation of singular and plural nouns and other parts of the sentence that have to agree with number whereas gender, a category hardly existent in English, but alive in German, regards the differences between masculine, feminine or even neuter nouns and how these affect other words in a properly phrased sentence. A grammatical category or element never stands alone as it influences all other parts of the structural system of a language. Nowadays, many ESL practitioners view grammar less as a body of knowledge to be studied than as a skill to be practiced and developed. Grammar knowledge is important, but only in so far as it enables students to communicate “accurately, meaningfully, and appropriately” (Larsen-Freeman 251-266). This paper traces the significance, history, kinds and teaching methods of English grammar.
