n. 1 A set of rules that govern how words are combined to form phrases and sentences. 2 (context computing countable English) The formal rules of formulating the statements of a computer language. 3 (context linguistics English) The study of the structure of phrases, sentences and language.
In computer science, SYNTAX is a system used to generate lexical and syntactic analyzers ( parsers) (both deterministic and non-deterministic) for all kinds of context-free grammars (CFGs) as well as some classes of contextual grammars. It has been developed at INRIA ( France) for several decades, mostly by Pierre Boullier, but has become free software since 2007 only. SYNTAX is distributed under the CeCILL license.
In logic, syntax is anything having to do with formal languages or formal systems without regard to any interpretation or meaning given to them. Syntax is concerned with the rules used for constructing, or transforming the symbols and words of a language, as contrasted with the semantics of a language which is concerned with its meaning.
The symbols, formulas, systems, theorems, proofs, and interpretations expressed in formal languages are syntactic entities whose properties may be studied without regard to any meaning they may be given, and, in fact, need not be given any.
Syntax is usually associated with the rules (or grammar) governing the composition of texts in a formal language that constitute the well-formed formulas of a formal system.
In computer science, the term syntax refers to the rules governing the composition of well-formed expressions in a programming language. As in mathematical logic, it is independent of semantics and interpretation.
Syntax are an English electronic music group originally formed in 2002 by the musicians Jan Burton (also the band's vocalist) and Mike Tournier (ex-member of the band Fluke). They are best known for the songs "Destiny", "Bliss" and "Pride".
Syntax, in linguistics, is a set of rules governing how words combine to form grammatical meanings.

- Syntax (journal), a Blackwell Publishing journal devoted to natural language syntax.
- Syntax (logic)
- Syntax (programming languages)
- Syntax (band)
- Syntax (television manufacturer)
- Syntax (typeface)
- SYNTAX, a compiler-generation system
In computer science, the syntax of a computer language is the set of rules that defines the combinations of symbols that are considered to be a correctly structured document or fragment in that language. This applies both to programming languages, where the document represents source code, and markup languages, where the document represents data. The syntax of a language defines its surface form. Text-based computer languages are based on sequences of characters, while visual programming languages are based on the spatial layout and connections between symbols (which may be textual or graphical). Documents that are syntactically invalid are said to have a syntax error.
Syntax – the form – is contrasted with semantics – the meaning. In processing computer languages, semantic processing generally comes after syntactic processing, but in some cases semantic processing is necessary for complete syntactic analysis, and these are done together or concurrently. In a compiler, the syntactic analysis comprises the frontend, while semantic analysis comprises the backend (and middle end, if this phase is distinguished).
Syntax is a peer-reviewed academic journal in the field of syntax of natural languages, established in 1998 and published by Wiley-Blackwell. Its current editors-in-chief are Suzanne Flynn ( Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and Klaus Abels ( University College London). The founding editors were Suzanne Flynn (MIT) and Samuel D. Epstein ( University of Michigan).
Syntax was rated A in both the Australian Research Council's ERA journal list for 2010 and the European Science Foundation's linguistics journal list.
