The structure of strings in some language. A language's
syntax is described by a grammar
. For example, the syntax
of a binary number could be expressed as
binary_number = bit [ binary_number ]
bit = "0" | "1"
meaning that a binary number is a bit optionally followed by a
binary number and a bit is a literal zero or one digit.
The meaning of the language is given by its semantics
