    Re: grammar

    There is a brief description about prescriptive and descriptive grammar on this site. Here's the link:
    Prescriptive Grammars - Glossary Definition - UsingEnglish.com

    You could try and do a research on google and see what you can find.

    By the way, it's useful not usefull.
