Semantic=Meaning.
Syntax=How the word is written.

That's a very straight forward  definition, or let's say:

Quote:https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1793...-languages


Syntax is about the structure or the grammar of the language. It answers the question: how do I construct a valid sentence? All languages, even English and other human (aka "natural") languages have grammars, that is, rules that define whether or not the sentence is properly constructed.

Semantics is about the meaning of the sentence. It answers the questions: is this sentence valid? If so, what does the sentence mean? For example:




I provided the "semantics". "Kafir" means "disbeliever". Check it left, check it right, it means what it is: I even provided the wikipedia link that proves this, I even quoted the relevant text from the article, but it seems that it's not enough.

It is not about the meaning of the word, it is about that even if somebody brought the clearest evidence but they are Muslims, you would reject what they say.
I won't keep on arguing after the wikipedia that I linked.

Hehe

Semantic change is about the change of meaning of a word over time.
