Grammar - a set of rules used in a language to maintain consistency in meaning so that people can understand each other. 

She typed grammar into a search field on the Interactive Board.  
She chose this definition from the search results for us to discuss. 

In linguistics, grammar is the set of structural rules governing the composition of clauses, phrases, and words in any given natural language. The term refers also to the study of such rules, and this field includes morphology, syntax, and phonology, often complemented by phonetics, semantics, and pragmatics.
