Key points

  • A syntax error is an error that can be spotted by a translator because a line in a program is incorrectly formed. This would include missing symbols (like a semi-colon or quotation mark), spelling mistakes or missing keywords such as a missing END IF
  • Syntax errors tend to prevent a program from running (depending on the language).
