'''Syntax '''refers to the set of rules that govern how a language forms its
[[Sentence|sentences ]]. The most obvious feature of the syntax is [[word order]], and it generally functions to show the relation between words in a sentence.
Syntax is often differentiated from [[morphology]] in that syntax operates at the sentence level (with entire
[[word]]s) and morphology operates within the word, with [[morpheme]]s. In the world of linguistics there is much debate over whether or not these may actually be one and the same, but for conlanging, it can be useful to think of them as separate.
