VALUE OF GRAMMAR
Language is the medium of communication among human beings. It is our ability to talk, to express our thoughts precisely and convey our ideas to others that distinguishes man from the beast. People those who speak the same language the communication process may not be complete and perfect unless the language used in precise. It is in this context that the importance of grammar has to be understood. The value of grammar is realized especially when a person has to write. Very often in conversational language, grammar is ignored and yet there is not much of a loss. But a person is judged by his writing. Grammar in any language is an important aspect of its literature.
Learning of grammar is not an easy process. But it becomes easy when pursued regularly, sincerely and with diligence. The important grammar is that each part of it is associated with another. Learning grammar does not require much physical labour. Grammar can be learnt without much trouble. No school, no room to study, no tools only thing required is a good book on grammar. The only thing that is needed is the will to learn. The value of grammar is immense. As mentioned earlier, a person is judged by his style of writing or by the correctness of his writing. Just as a man is looked upon with contempt when he speaks incorrectly; a man unable to write grammatically is not given much respect. Many who speak correctly often write incorrectly. It is said that in the simple language used by Gandhiji, it is very difficult to substitute any word even by its synonym, for the word chosen by him reflects his exact thought. This is the hallmark of good writing and this cannot be attained without grammar.
