« Back to Glossary Index

Language structure refers to the syntactical, lexical, semantic and phonological components of language. That is, how words and sentences are combined and/or organized into patterns exhibiting the grammar of the language, how these patterns are used in conveying meaning, and how sound is used for comprehensibility to reach communicative goals. Simply put, language structures refer to the conventions of language use.
