"akin to the single word request". Really? That would open the forum to questions like "I want to convince Best Buy to repair my PC free/", "I want to learn to bargain a price down to half", "I want to teach my dog 200 words", "I want words to convince my tomato plant to grow quickly"

comment A word for dividing a list of documents
The mathematical term is called grouping. The buckets are groups. The industrial term is called binning - bins. The high school maths term is called categorizing - categories. The mathematical fields of studies using these are Statistics and Group Theory. Group Theory goes into very simple to extremely complex ways to imbue relationships to group items. As far as I can see, therefore, you should use whatever term that makes sense to you.

There is usually no such thing as "ungrammatical". The word should be abnormal, unusual or nonstandard grammar. Otherwise, "accepted", "normal", "formal". The reason being, even pidgin English is grammatical, if the regional pidgin has a consistent pattern - because grammar = pattern of usage.
