WELCOME!

Earthly space is three-dimensional. Language grammar belongs with the estimable heights, widths, and depths or lengths, along with the human need for fresh water, air, good clothing, and a decent roof. Grammar is a basic human need. It is healthy to have a good business with grammar.

Everyone thinks, speaks, or writes in real time. Sometimes, there is not even a moment to consult a rule or definition. Language MappingTM invokes human natural capability for logic. ■→More

The logic is flexible, as language is not a predetermined reality: beginning to read a book or to watch a movie, we usually have some expectation on what there is going to be; somewhere around the middle, we may look back to what has happened, and at the end we may think about things accomplished.

In life, our grammar will vary as well, for things done and those prospective. Hence the Travel in Grammar: we practice a grammatical point of view.

Part 1, Featured Image

Grammatical time is not the clock, but just as with real time, we cannot touch or see it. We can manage as in fields, with a little mind practice. ■→More

The grammar may prove most effective step-by-step.

Chapter 1. Be, Have, Do
We think about three fields we name the Past, Present, and Future: to learn the grammatical time, we learn to manage as in fields of time. ■→More

1.2. Mind Practice
Thought and language originate in the mind, and most exercises in this grammar course are to be done in thought, to encourage mind habits. ■→More

Chapter 2. The Future Needs the Present
The real time we people live in is always our present. We can make predictions on the real-time future, but we never can really move into a future time; the verb form “will” is in the shape for the present, to tell about the future. ■→More

Chapter 4. Aspect Cognitive Mapping
Human walking or other moving about needs place and time, yet it does not need anybody to describe, give rules or definitions. There are a few words quite often in use, to talk about places in English, as on, in, and to. ■→More

Part 2, Featured Image

Sooner than later, life brings the talk about Unreal Past or Future in the Past, more, in Reported Speech. With grammatical time frames, we can get along easy. ■→More

Grammar Off the Record

It is a fact of life that we do not graduate in linguistics before we hear or speak everyday language, or read Huck Finn. ■→The Grapevines

FOUR CORNERS OF THE WORLD

To see how we could cognitively map in language, let us try a mild brainteaser. If we compare our answers with family, friends, or other people and the results are consistent, the mapping is natural for us, even if the idea has not been not well-known: our brainteaser is intuitive. ■→More

4.1. THE IDEA OF TRAVEL IN GRAMMAR

We can think about the Simple, Progressive, and Perfect — together, as variables that we choose in real time. It can be good time and in truth, no effort at all. ■→More

5.1. THE LOGIC SO FAR

We sum up on the grammar logic here so far, and visualize Time along with Aspect as for moving about; hiking, for example. ■→More

6.1. LINGUISTIC GRAVITATION

We began with clocks and grounds in experience, to tell between the Simple and the Perfect. We people yet happen to speak without a clock, as well as to share novelty. We may resort to thought about a natural earthly phenomenon, namely gravitation. It can help us choose on the time frame for the Simple or Perfect. ■→More

8.1. EARTHLING BASIC VARIABLE

Planet Earth has been a human natural habitat for millennia. In thousands of years, people to think what there is {ON} a map, have not denied plausibility for places {IN} areas, routes {TO} places, as well as locations {AT} them. Early childhood learning to talk has been getting along with learning to walk. For all English Aspects and tenses, this is always the first element in the verb pattern to change for the grammatical time, and that as for the variable {ON}. ■→More

CHAPTER 10. FORM RELATIVITY GALORE

Let us try linguistic relativity. For theory or guesswork, we can use PRESENT verb forms to refer to the FUTURE; PAST forms let refer to the PRESENT, and ANTECEDENT PAST forms can refer to the PAST. ■→More
