But I do not work alone! I work with my trusty team in ensuring that the rules are followed, the organization of the parts of language, and the arrangement of words in a sentence is in the proper order.

The Syntax League
The syntax league works together, just like sentences and words.
A sentence needs a subject and a predicate to work cohesively together.
Comic Panel 2
The Syntax league is always ready to explain and ensure that every sentence is correct when words are put together and a sentence is formed. Let's ask Noun and Pronoun what a Subject is?
A subject needs a noun. A noun is a person, place, thing, or idea.

Noun
Pronoun
Pronouns can also stand-in for proper nouns such as he, she, and them.

There are auxiliary and helping verbs. Verbs give more information about the main verb words like be, can, and have provided more details about the main verb.

There are also linking verbs that describe the state of being and refer back to the subject like acting, doing, or staying.

A predicate needs a verb; it is the subject's action or performance. However, there is more than one type of verb.

The determiner in a sentence is the word that signals a noun is coming words like the, an, this, and that signal a noun should follow.

I want to remind everyone that combining words, determiners, and prepositions work well with nouns when creating a sentence.

In addition, a Preposition describes a noun to another word.

 Adjective words like big, gray, and stinky describe the word properties and can also be placed in front of a word.

Interjection words are words or phrases that express emotion or feeling.

Conjunction
Fanboy
I will save you Syntax League!
Speech Bubble
Conjunctions are words that join words, phrases, clauses, or sentences. 
'And,' 'or,' and 'but' are the most prevalent. These words have a variety of meanings and implications, but they all contribute to the formation of meaningful relationships within a phrase.
Comic Panel 1
Sentences are made of phrases and/or Clauses. A phrase is a small set of words that function as a single unit, usually part of a function. The subject of a sentence has a noun phrase, and the predicate has a verb phrase.
Clauses are divided into two categories. Because they have a subject and a predicate, causes are similar to sentences.
A clause that can stand alone as a single sentence is independent. A dependent clause cannot exist without the presence of an independent clause.
Comic Panel 2
The evil supervillain doesn't know that each Syntax league member has their own purpose to ensure that Syntax rules and grammar are properly used and followed.
Once again, The Syntax League will save the day from the evil supervillain.
I'm going to break down your sentences, Syntax League! Your sentence structure will become wordy and make no sense. Bwahahaha
