" For the record, I don't believe I ever said of grammar and style that
never the twain shall meet. In practical terms, however, we do make
distinctions between them. For instance, we have separate reference
works for grammar and for style. (Though I don't know that I have ever
seen a tome devoted purely to punctuation, rather than as a subset of
grammar). Sorry, some gratuitous tongue-in-cheek there."


Interestingly, the Library of Congress gives "Punctuation" its own
subject heading - completely distinct from and "Language and Languages
-- Grammars" and "Grammar, Comparative and general" or any subheading
thereof.
