A descriptive grammar is built up by analyzing how speakers use a language, and deducing the rules they are following. A prescriptive grammar is a set of explicit rules for using language that are taught, or enforced, so that people will use the language in a particular way. Typically the rules are handed down from generation to generation.
Generative grammar is a set of rules that indicates the structure and interpretation of sentences which native speakers accept as belonging to the language.

Lexical-functional grammar, usually referred to as LFG, is a theoretical approach to syntax and related components of grammar originally developed in the late 1970s by Joan Bresnan and Ronald Kaplan. Conceived within the general program of generative linguistics, LFG differs from other such approaches in several respects.
Lexicogrammar is a term used in systemic functional linguistics (SFL) to emphasize the interdependence of--and continuity between--vocabulary and syntax . The term lexicogrammar (literally, lexicon plus grammar) was introduced by linguist M.A.K. Halliday. Adjective: lexicogrammatical.
