GRAMMAR = early 14c., gramarye (late 12c. in surnames), from Old French gramaire "learning," especially Latin and philology, "grammar, (magic) incantation, spells, mumbo-jumbo," "irregular semi-popular adoption" [OED] of Latin grammatica, from Greek grammatike tekhne "art of letters," with a sense of both philology and literature in the broadest sense, fem. adjective from gramma "letter," from stem of graphein "to draw or write" (see -graphy). An Old English word for it was stæfcræft (see staff (n.)).
Form grammar is from late 14c. Restriction to "rules of language" is a post-classical development, but as this type of study was until 16c. limited to Latin, Middle English gramarye also came to mean "learning in general, knowledge peculiar to the learned classes" (early 14c.), which included astrology and magic; hence the secondary meaning of "occult knowledge" (late 15c.), which evolved in Scottish into glamor (q.v.).
A grammar school (late 14c.) originally was "a school in which the learned languages are grammatically taught" [Johnson, who also has grammaticaster "a mean verbal pedant"]. In U.S. (1842) the term was put to use in the graded system for "a school between primary and secondary where English grammar is taught."
THE JOINING TOGETHER OF LETTERS TO CREATE HEAVEN AND EARTH!
GRAMMAR the study of the way the sentences of a language are constructed; morphology and syntax.
LETTERSa symbol or character that is conventionally used in writing and printing to represent a speech sound and that is part of an alphabet.
In addition to being the first great artist of God mentioned in the Torah, the Talmud states that Betzalel “knew how to join together the letters with which heaven and earth were created”
[C14: from Old French gramaire, from Latin grammatica, from Greek grammatike ( tekhne ) the grammatical (art), from grammatikos concerning letters, from gramma letter]
