Who knew that a day devoted to good grammar could be so much fun?
How, dear reader, will celebrate National Grammar Day?
National Grammar Day was launched in 2008 by Martha Brockenbrough, founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar, or SPOGG. It is being observed for the sixth time on March 4.
You've got to hand it to Ms. Brockenbrough for her inspired choice of date, which forms a complete sentence: March forth!
As Mignon Fogarty, of "Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing" fame, puts it:
"Language is something to celebrate, and March 4 is the perfect day to do it. It's not only a date, it's an imperative: March forth on March 4 to speak well, write well, and help others do the same!"
