  object (grammar)
In grammar, the recipient of the action of the verb in a sentence.
The object can be a noun, a pronoun, a noun phrase, or a noun clause.
Transitive verbs take a direct object and with some verbs there may also be an indirect object or an equivalent complement.

  Grammar - LoveToKnow 1911
Grammar may accordingly be divided into the three departments of composition or "word-building," syntax and accidence, by which is meant an exposition of the means adopted by language for expressing the relations of grammar when recourse is not had to composition or simple position.
Universal grammar is sometimes known as "the metaphysics of language," and it has to decide such questions as the nature of gender or of the verb, the true purport of the genitive relation, or the origin of grammar itself.
Universal grammar, as founded on the results of the scientific study of speech, is thus essentially different from that "universal grammar" so much in vogue at the beginning of the 10th century, which consisted of a series of a priori assumptions based on the peculiarities of European grammar and illustrated from the same source.

 Picture presentation for Blind
If for all objects is defined if they are or not in each phases and if they got any new description then the browsing user can ask the browser what changes are between two phases of picture and the browser can tell it to him.
Of course each object could have other description like position, color, etc. but these information are not crucial for understanding information value of most pictures (this conclusion was made after several tests with blind and non-blind users).
This grammar is developed with idea to generate universal description language for representing any objects, their behavior and relations.

 Definition of Object (grammar)
In linguistics, the object of a transitive verb is one of its core arguments, which generally represents the target of the verb's action.
In many languages, the patient of a ditransitive verb is marked in the same way as the single object of a monotransitive verb, and is called the direct object.
In more isolating languages such as English, objects are marked by their position in the sentence or using adpositions (like "to" in "I gave a book to him").

Each object has its own values for the instance variables of its class and can respond to the methods defined by its class.
For example, an object of the "Point" class might have instance variables "x" and "y" and might respond to the "plot" method by drawing a dot on the screen at those coordinates.

 Glossary
Grammars are rules that describe how you can combine various elements of a language; they ensure that the components of a program fit together meaningfully.
In ETI·EXTRACT, a grammar object consists of syntax rules, translation rules, and definitions that are used to recognize input and translate it into another form—a segment of slot code, a set of properties, actual code, or even an entire ETI·EXTRACT schema definition.

The direct object will not equal the subject as the predicate nominative, nor does it have a linking verb as a predicate nominative sentences does.
The direct object for the verb ate is meat, and the direct object for the verb drank is water.
They may be sentences with direct objects, compound verbs with separate direct objects, predicate nominatives, or without either a direct object or predicate nominative.

 Parser generator in Python: kwParsing
The reloaded grammar object augmented with interpretation functions may be used to parse strings of the language.
To define a language syntax using kjParseBuild you must create a null compilable grammar object to contain the grammar (in building a simple grammar this is done on line 3 using the class constructor kjParseBuild.NullCGrammar() creating the grammar object LispG) and define the components of the grammar and the rules for recognizing the components.
Either the grammar is ambiguous, or it doesn't have a derivation for the root nonterminal, or it is too tricky for the generator.

When the speech-recognition engine detects a match with a grammar, it may cause a transition to another dialog (if the grammar is in a menu item or link) or assign a return value to assign to an input variable (if the grammar is in a form or input item).
For internal grammars, if the grammar definition specifies the grammar type (either directly with a declaration or indirectly by containing XML elements), the interpreter uses that type.
If the built-in grammar is used as a field grammar, then the slot names and values returned are converted into properties and values on the field's input variable.

The direct object pronouns are placed in front of the verb.
When the action is directed ‘toward’, or ‘at’ an object, that object is an indirect object.
The indirect object pronouns are exactly the same as the direct object pronouns except for the third person singular and plural forms.

The object that directly receives the action of the verb is called the direct object.
However, if the direct object of the sentence changes to a masculine noun, the masculine pronoun must be used.
Likewise, if the direct object of the sentence changes from singular to plural, the plural pronoun must be used.

 SENG 609.03 Object Theory: Review Paper
The use of classes as attributes of an object is useful in a conceptual and a technical viewpoint in object-oriented languages.
Block Structure provides locality: describing an object by a local class or procedure, and the existence of instances of such local classes or procedures is meaningful only as part of its enclosure object.
Class grammar has two attributes: one is a class attribute token that declares two procedure attributes; the other is a procedure attribute precRel that takes two instances of the local class token as input parameters and return a character indicating the precedence relation between the two input token objects.

Literals are matched using the same comparison rule as the Dictionary object used at the time of parsing; this means that any case folding, truncation, accent elisions, and other special matching rules that the Dictionary uses are applied in the same manner to grammar literals.
You might want to modify or replace a grammar rule when you are using a library that defines a set of grammar rules, because this allows you to use the rules the library defines, but remove or change specific rules whose library definitions are not what you want.
The match tree consists of objects that the parser creates dynamically; these objects are instances of our grammar objects-not of the production objects, but of the unnamed "processor" objects that go with the grammar statement.

 'Grammar Girl' a quick and dirty success - CNN.com
(CNN) -- Grammar lessons often are associated with high school drudgery -- diagramming sentences and memorizing obscure rules in between passing notes in English class -- but an Arizona technical writer has turned the seemingly dry subject into a popular podcast.
Grammar wasn't the issue in the 5-4 decision, but Justice Clarence Thomas referred to "Kansas' statute" in the majority opinion, while Justice David Souter wrote about "Kansas's statute" in the minority.
It's correct to say "Whom does Sarah love?" ("whom" is the object of Sarah's love) and "Who loves Sarah?" ("who" is the subject of the sentence).

 Objects and Complements
An indirect object (which, like a direct object, is always a noun or pronoun) is, in a sense, the recipient of the direct object.
An object complement is similar to a subject complement, except that (obviously) it modifies an object rather than a subject.
In this case, the noun "driver" is the direct object of the verb "consider," but the adjective "tired" is still acting as its complement.

Etymology: The word object comes from the latin word objectum a noun form of objectus which in turn comes from objicere, which means to throw or put something before someone.
In computer science, an object is a language supported mechanism for binding data tightly with methods that operate on that data.
For instance, the monster group is an object in the category of all groups.

 Re: [Finale] Garritan and other stuff
So there's a difference between "changing the grammar" -- which effectively means you're changing the language -- and making a grammatical change, like switching the subject and object in a sentence.
And, again, just because you don't consciously think about English grammar and its word order rules when you speak, or read, or write, doesn't mean it "has no significance in the *meaning* of any particular speech or written utterance".
In order to decode the meaning, you need to determine which word is the subject and which word is the object, and the words themselves don't reveal that information.
