Grammaire du Décaméron (1969) (Eng: Grammar of the Decameron) is a work of literary theory written by Tzvetan Todorov. Its subject is the 'grammar' of Giovanni Boccaccio's The Decameron. The work is famous for coining the term narratology. Todorov used the Decameron as the basis for the exploration of the general structure of all narrative.
