I'm not a linguist, nor have I ever studied linguistics.
However, I did look it up in the dictionary. ;-)

I don't think it is fair to compare linguistic rules with
grammar rules. They are not the same. I think linguistics deals
with human speech, regardless whether it is grammatically
correct or not. Just because a particular sentence follows the
positional rules of linguistics does not make that sentence
correct grammatically.

It may not be apples and oranges, but it may be oranges and
grapefruit.
