Just sketching an idea

I am beginning to acknowledge that syntax-n-grammar are not completely good for nothing subjects. From a slightly more enlightened position, I can see that syntax-n-grammar give the mind an opportunity to see patterns in the words that are being used - so that recognized pattern of words can be used to fill in a narrative - almost independently from what narrative is being filled. Syntax could fill more than one narrative. The point is that it functions to predict the next words in the same way that narratives function to predict the next meaning.
I like the idea that syntax is a means for extrapolating to future words.
