LAGB glossary of grammatical terminology


The committee of the Linguistics Association of Great Britain (LAGB) agreed to adopt a glossary of grammatical terminology whose current version, dated 3 September 2014 and containing about 300 entries, is available in two formats:

The aim of this glossary is to guide teachers and publishers. A standardised terminology allows each teacher to build on the grammatical metalanguage that children have learned from other teachers; and in particular, it allows Foreign-language teachers to build on the grammatical terms that children have learned in English (and vice versa). At present, there is no such standard terminology in our schools; and even within a single subject different teachers may use different terms (or may give terms different meanings). The glossary is firmly based on academic research in grammar.
