Note that we don't say that English grammar/vocabulary is "legal". There are no laws about what words you can and can't use in a sentence. Legal documents must use specific terminology in order for the document to be legally binding but in normal English, there are no "laws".
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
