On March 4, let’s march forth and honor grammar!
Established in 2008 by Martha Brockenbrough, writer and founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar (SPOGG), National Grammar Day is an occasion to celebrate language. It is hosted by none other than Mignon Fogarty, “Grammar Girl” herself.
So make yourself a grammartini and join the fun at the National Grammar Day website, where you’ll find grammar-themed wallpaper, contests, photos, and even a theme song (“March Forth. Grammar’s the bomb …”).
And for some other grammar resources, check out some of our most popular posts:
• Where’s the semicolon love?
• Put it in parentheses (please)
• The colon: an unappreciated mark with an unfortunate name
• Quoth the writer, “Nevermore”
• The ellipsis is cool, but …
• The ampersand: form & function
