How do you identify syntax in a book?

If the book contains sentences which adhere to the rules and structures of the book's language.


Syntax is " The arrangement of words and phrases to create well-formed sentences in a language."

This means syntax can be found in any book which has sentences that follow the rules of its langauge. In fact, syntax can be found right now in the sentences I am writing. For example, take this sentence:

"I am writing in English."

In the English language, sentences usually follow the SOV rule: Subject , Verb , Object . The subject in the example sentence is "I," the verb is "writing," and the object is "English," all in that order. Because of this, I have used the correct syntax.

I hope I helped!
