    The structure of valid strings in a given language,
   as 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.
