We consider context-free grammars $G_n$ in Greibach normal form and, particularly, in Greibach $m$-form ($m=1,2$) which generates the finite language $L_n$ of all $n!$ strings that are permutations of $n$ different symbols ($n\geq 1$). These grammars are investigated with respect to their descriptional complexity, i.e., we determine the number of nonterminal symbols and the number of production rules of $G_n$ as functions of $n$. As in the case of Chomsky normal form these descriptional complexity measures grow faster than any polynomial function.
