Example sentences using "Grammar"

Q: Please show me example sentences with Hello, I would like to ask a grammar question about the following example sentences

Many today are calling for historical objects currently residing in, largely Western, museums to be returned to their nation of origin. .
A: The reason it’s before the word museums is it’s an adjective:

Historical objects currently residing in Western museums. Western is the adjective modifying museums. Largely is an adverb modifying Western. Adjectives almost always go before the noun they modify.

It’s better written as

Many today are calling for historic artifacts currently housed in, largely Western, museums to be returned to their nation of origin.

Q: Please show me example sentences with "formal grammar" and "formal expressions" in conversation..
A: In English, talking formally is more about being polite. for example instead of saying,
"Come over here John" you can say
"John, could you please come here?".

Try not to be too direct or sound too confident. You can use words like
"Pardon" or "Excuse me?" Instead of "What did you say" or "What?" If you want to ask for permission you can use "May I..."
"May I look at those documents?" Even though these are polite ways of saying things, it still sounds stiff. I wouldn't worry about it that much, but it also depends on what workplace you are gonna work at. If the work is like construction (for example), you don't really need to be that formal but if it's business you probably do.
Q: Please show me example sentences with had had (grammar).
A: He had had enough to eat, so he stopped.

She had had her report earlier, but now she couldn't find it.

He had had the car looked at, but it still wouldn't run properly.

Synonyms of "Grammar" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between grammar and syntax ?
A: I think both grammar and syntax refer to the rules of arrangement of words, etc. But syntax is grammar stripped of meaning. For example, English syntax shows us that a typical sentence is Subject-Verb-Object. This disregards any associated meaning. Grammar would show us that adding "will" to a sentence can change the meaning so that it indicates something in the future.
Q: What is the difference between grammar school and comprehensive school ?
A: A Grammar School is a school that takes children based on ability, usually by a set of examinations sat at the age of around eleven. There are very few of these left in the UK. A comprehensive school is a school which takes children of all abilities.
Q: What is the difference between Has it got grammar difference? and Does have it grammar difference? ?
A: Better would be: "Is there a grammar difference?" or "Is there a difference in the grammar?"

But "does it have _a_ grammar difference?" and "has it got _a_ grammar difference?" mean the same. "Does it have" is more accepted. Some people don't like sentences with "has it got."
Q: What is the difference between Descriptive grammar and Prescriptive grammar ?
A: A prescriptive grammar is a set of rules about language based on how people think language should be used. In a prescriptive grammar there is right and wrong language. It can be compared with a descriptive grammar, which is a set of rules based on how language is actually used.

prescriptive grammar is when a person thinks they are using grammar correctly but they are not

descriptive grammar is correct grammar
Q: What is the difference between in grammar and grammatically ?
