Traditional Grammar more focusses on the correct arrangement of the word in the native language and it is based on meaning. Besides it is also based on written language which is considered better than spoken language. Immediate Constituent Analysis focusses the analysis more on the relation of each constituent in a sentence rather than on how the sentence is constructed. Whereas Transformational Grammar which studies on internal language or it is called competence focusses on the grammar which is assumed as a model or systematic description of linguistics competence. From the study It is also known that each syntax approach has their own strengths and weaknesses regarding their use in maritime english subject.
