No.

But there are number of places in documentation where it takes about the 
Mathematica "grammar".

http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/tutorial/SpecialWaysToInputExpressions.html
"The Mathematica language has a definite grammar which specifies how your 
input should be converted to internal form. One aspect of the grammar is 
that it specifies how pieces of your input should be grouped."

Also, in the documentation center, under "core language" -> "Language 
review".
