Abstract: An ideal $I$ in the free associative algebra $k\langle X_{1},\dots ,X_{n}\rangle $ over a field $k$ is shown to have a finite Gröbner basis if the algebra defined by $I$ is commutative; in characteristic 0 and generic coordinates the Gröbner basis may even be constructed by lifting a commutative Gröbner basis and adding commutators.
