An Unexpected Reason Why Grammar Matters

Grammar matters because it expresses relationality. That is, it specifies the relationships between and among entities, events, and ideas. Most readers do not map this out in their minds, But for writers, the more precise they are, the more likely they are to bring an intense focus to the syntactical dimension of grammar, i.e., constructing sentences, linking those sentences, and, finally, orchestrating their flow into a complete piece of writing.
