To grammatical rules or non-rules.

Recently one of my clients asked me an interesting question: “What are the rules, do you think you know enough to teach, and you have to teach them?”

Since I am particularly concerned with the correct written communication, the logic and the pride of knowing my conditional conditions of twisting, my immediate reaction is, “Yes, of course I know enough and yes, we have to.” focus on the rules! “But when I thought about it, I noticed a lot.

Let’s think about what grammar really is: Rules contain a structure for the language. Is it the set of rules in each language that determines how words are used, what forms they should take and what they should carry?

These rules or “rules” include syntax (how words are combined into sentences), morphology (phonology), phonology (investigation of sounds in isolation), and semantics (meaning of science in speech forms). This is the basis of all languages. Each language has its own system and grammar structure. In some languages ​​this can be very complicated, English is an example and you need to understand the rules in order to communicate effectively.

Rules define how sentences are formulated, e.g. B. auxiliary verbs (for example) before main verbs (eg access) in positive sentences.

The grammar also tells us what kind of word is used when. This knowledge is known about how different words and forms can be changed with “morphology” and literally means “study of change”. Words change their form to express different meanings, either to indicate the number of things that exist, whether something happened in the past or in the present, and something happened. It is necessary to understand the morphology in order to gain a complete understanding of the language, e.g. For example, to know the different forms of “drinking” (drinking, drinking). Know the relative forms and super “fast” (faster and faster), and know that it can also be irregular. For example, for “good” it is “better” and “better”.

We use many examples of grammatical decisions when we use English, and native speakers only know these rules without really understanding why the sentence is structured in a certain way.

The rules give depth and variety of meanings to what can only be a mixture of words.

The grammar has its place. Let us now turn to the question of whether English teachers should have a solid foundation for rules, should we know?

The short answer to this question is “yes”. The language teacher must understand the grammatical structure of the language he is studying. The grammar is the base of the language, defining the structure of the sentence and the correct form of the words to use. Without at least some knowledge it will be very difficult for the teacher to explain the complexity of a language.

When teaching something new to someone, it is important that you have a reference system that facilitates the interpretation of irregularities and the recognition of illogical word patterns and sentence syntax. And why? “Then at least some explanations for the student.This may not have any immediate meaning, but it removes the debate from the question of whether it is true or false.If you do not have that proficiency in a language, the student soon becomes frustrated feel if his or her questions are not answered, and wonder how far the teacher already knows! Of course, if the student gains a better command of the language, his thirst for knowledge grows, and the teacher must be in advance or at least follow him.

The rules include this system or set of rules that can help the teacher “teach” the language comprehensively and help students understand the basics. Understanding the basics of organizing a language provides a solid foundation for building. If the basics of the onset of confusion are absent, it will probably be embarrassing to perform a new treatment. Native speakers of all languages ​​learn grammatical structures or synthesize their child language, enabling ESL students to gain the same understanding of the languages ​​that teachers need to learn to fully understand the grammatical system.

Regardless of what the teacher teaches his students, it must be appropriate and in line with the student’s educational goals. This is especially useful for students in English.
