Syn•tax

Syn•tax

is the study of the way that words are arranged into phrases, clauses, and sentences. While most people do not use the term all that often to talk about English, scholars use it extensively in discussions of the original languages. While words in Greek or Hebrew often have slightly different nuances than their equivalents in English, it is in their syntax, the way in which those words relate to one another, that the greatest challenges to understanding are usually found.
