Introduction To Grammatical Units

.

.

The term, “Grammatical Unit” is a NOT a standard Grammatical Term in “normal” English Grammar…  (or any Grammatical System as far as I know.)  It is, instead, a Common Tongue Grammatical Term that I “coined”, to better be able to describe the terms for Words and Phrases in The Grammatical System of The Common Tongue.  Which is an enlightened way of Knowing & Comprehending that which is commonly referred to as:  “English Grammar.

.

A Grammatical Unit is any:  Word, Term, or (sometimes) Phrase — which functions as a single individual “Unit” within a Grammatical Device, such as:  a Clause, a Phrase, or an Interjection.
.
.

Grammatical Unit + Grammatical Unit(s) = Grammatical Device

.

All Grammatical Units are made-up-of the Grammatical Elements known-as:  “Letters” — and sometimes, the Grammatical Elements known-as: “Punctuation” (for example the Grammatical Element of the “Apostrophe” in the Grammatical Unit of the contracted Word, “You’re”.Grammatical Units are, then, combined to form Grammatical Devices like those mentioned above.
.
.

Grammatical Element(s) + Grammatical Element(s) = Grammatical Unit

&

Grammatical Unit(s) + Grammatical Unit(s) and/or Grammatical Element(s) = Grammatical Device

.

Those Grammatical Devices are then combined (sometimes) with other Grammatical Units, and yet more Grammatical Elements of “Punctuation”, to form Grammatical Structures — i.e.: Sentences.  Those structures, then, grow-and-grow by the combination of yet more Grammatical Structures, to form even larger Grammatical Structures — i.e.:  Paragraphs.

Grammatical Element(s) + Grammatical Unit(s) + Grammatical Devices = Grammatical Structure

More About Grammatical Units

.

All of what is referred to in “Traditional  English Grammar as:  “The Parts of Speech” — or more appropriately (but less commonly) termed as:  “Word Classes” — are, in The Common Tongue, referred-to as:  “Grammatical Units”.  These include  Adjectives, Adverbs, Conjunctions, (most) Interjections, Nouns, Numerals, Prepositions, Pronouns, & Verbs — as-well-as their related Phrasal (but not *Phrase) forms.
.

* The “Phrasal” form is that-which is a Compound-Word or Term that functions as a single “Unit”.  The Phrase form is that-which is a Multi-word Phrase that takes-on the function of a single Grammatical Unit.
