 The research works on exploring the importance of syntax in language comprehension and production. The discussion uses a systematic literature review to find the connection between syntax and production and then syntax with comprehension. The study identified a gap in the recent development in the linguistic field and less exploration of syntax. The findings of the study reveal the strong relationship of syntax as it helps create a better connection for language proficiency. Syntax is fundamental for both production and understanding. Talents and perceptual-motor skills are highlighted in the integrated theories of second language acquisition, which throw doubt on more traditional notions of abstract linguistic knowledge. Furthermore, there is an urgent need for research that accounts for varying learning methods, real-world situations, and language levels to determine the nature of the relationship between production and comprehension. The complex interplay between language use and syntax is shown by the spectrum of grammatical competence. The field seems to be expanding, with a focus on understanding how individual variability impacts language processing and the nuances of syntax in different language situations. Listening ability has a strong relation to sentence production and formation when assessed in both groups. Moreover, it is evident that syntax plays an imperative role in communicating and helping the other person comprehend meaning.

Keywords: Syntax, comprehension, production, linguistics, communication, second language acquisition



Syntax in language is defined as the structural set of rules that are part of a sentence. It deals with the structure and form of natural languages, like the sequence of physical gestures or spoken English in American Sign Language (Morvay, 2012). Linguistics comes under the discipline of human language and comprises three subfields. The first subfield is the forms of language, including syntax, morphology, and phonology. The second subfield is related to semantics and pragmatics. The third one is the different context it is studied in.
