National Grammar Day
March 4, 2020 is National Grammar Day. National Grammar Day was established in 2008 by founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar and author of Things That Make Us [Sic], Martha Brockenbrough. This year, National Grammar Day is hosted by Mignon Fogarty, the author of the New York Times best-selling book Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing and The Grammar Devotional. The purpose of the day is to encourage the use of correct grammar. While it has become fashionable to suggest that proponents of good grammar are purveyors of something more insidiously sinister, grammar is not only a set of rules for language, it is a system for understanding language. Understanding language better, helps us to understand one another better. There is nothing exclusive or sinister about that.
Language is something to celebrate. There are many ways to observe #NationalGrammarDay, from reading, to learning a new word. Celebrate your love of language and the day in your own way. Post about it using the #NationalGrammarDay hashtag.
