Nice treatment of an unfamiliar topic. I had figured out most of what the syntax/convention was before reading this but didn't know it had a name and defined rules.

<opinion type="humble">The SQL team wrighting BOL should include a link to understanding the BNF convention as a part of BOL. Kind of like you get with a book where they spell out "conventions used in this book".</opinion>

I really enjoyed and appreciated this article. there is not a lot of information about EBNF around and this was really useful. I seem to remember that these diagrams were in the original Sybase documentation before Microsoft bought the product to turn it into SQL Server, and it has somehow hung on, unloved.


Best wishes,
