Part V: Appendix > SQL Structure and Syntax

SQL Structure and Syntax

You’ll find SQL simple to learn and use if you know the proper syntax for passing data. For the most part, SQL consists of keywords—individual words with a predefined meaning. Most keywords can include arguments, just like functions and procedures. A keyword with arguments is known as a clause.

Combined clauses that make a request of the database engine are called statements. A statement can consist of just one clause, but usually, there is more than one.
