Grammatical structure

JABBERWOCKY

T’was brillig and the slithy toves

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe.

All mimsy were the borrograves,

And the mome wraths outgrabe.”

from Lewis Carrol: Alice through the Looking Glass. (recorded 1976)

The point of this is of course, that in our language, meaning is conveyed more through grammatical structure than by the individual words.
