The grammar plays a vital role in equipping the students to communicate in English without any flaw. Many students find certain level of difficulties to learn grammar and suffer from grammatophobia. Though grammar is hard to learn it plays a predominant role in excelling in the English language. The aversion towards the grammar can be mitigated by taking some efforts. The present study focuses on the measurement of grammatophobia among the Undergraduate students of English Literature in Tirunelveli District. The sample consists of 202 students. The random sample technique was adopted to select the sample of the study. The tool ShWi’s Scale on Grammatophobia (SWSG) was constructed, standardized, and used. For the analysis of the data, statistical techniques such as Mean, Standard Deviation, ‘t’ test, and Mann Whitney test were used. The investigator analysed seven studies that discussed various problems and difficulties that were faced by the teachers and students while teaching and learning English grammar.
