Answer:

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

Explanation:

Syntax is " The arrangement of words and phrases to create well-formed sentences in a language." https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/syntax

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!
