If your question is in regards to a programming language, it is similar to spelling and grammar. If you make a mistake while writing a program you will encounter an error, just like using an incorrect word in a sentence. For a program to run, it has to be syntactically correct, for it to perform well its semantics (logic) needs to be correct.
