What do you view as purpose or goal of a grammar?

That might be useful for all of us in understanding what expectations each of us bring to the task of grammar.

That could be a good idea.

Actually, I don't see much relationship between acquiring a language and knowing the grammar. It seems strange to me to expect beginners to do both simultaneously.
