User: What is the history of traditional grammar





Weegy: Traditional grammar was initially based on European languages, particularly on Latin and Greek. It is the most widespread and elaborate grammar and is widely used in language teaching, thus termed pedagogic grammar. [ In analyzing sentences, the method adopted is called parsing. This generally involves five aspects: (1) identifying elements of the sentence, labeling the parts as subject, predicate, object, attribute, adverbial, etc.; (2) identifying part of speech of each word; (3) pointing out the inflection of the words; (4) describing the relationship between the words; (5) generalizing the order of words. Fundamentally, this approach to the analysis of sentence structure is notional in nature. It classifies words and parts of sentences mainly according to meaning. While traditional grammar is well established, its weaknesses are pinpointed by modern linguists. Firstly, it is prescriptive in nature, attempting to lay down rules for speakers of a language. Secondly, its grammatical categories are merely based on European languages and are found inadequate in describing other languages. Thirdly, it lacks a theoretical framework and thus fails to account for the nature of language. ]
