It’s March 4th, that means it is National Grammar Day. Some of us may wish every day was a grammar holiday, but we can take National Grammar Day as a step towards better composition of phrases, clauses, and words.
The holiday was initiated by Martha Brockenbrough, the founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar and was designated as a holiday by President George W. Bush in 2008. National Grammar Day in 2019 is hosted by Mignon Fogarty, the author of Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing and the creator of the Grammar Pop app.
Here are some suggestions for celebrating today:
