Are you happy with the meaning of English grammatical terms?
Most people under 60 seem not to have done much grammar at school. In the late 1960s, schools in many English-speaking countries changed their emphasis to other aspects. Apologies if this isn’t your snag!
I always recommend buying a cheap basic English grammar to people learning a foreign language.
Not all the terms will arise in English, but many will – like subjunctive and objective etc
