What is grammar?

What types of grammars are there?

What are the reasons for thinking to develop a grammar for Standard Names?
Briefly:

  1. To help people preparing a name for proposal to formulate the name according to the Standard Name guidelines.
  2. To help check that a proposed name conforms to the guidelines.
  3. To provide a formal mechanism for generating and checking names, without the need for a formal approval process for individual names.
  4. To ensure that names are formulated according to strict and consistent principles.
