Happy National Grammar Day!

5 Mar

In case you haven’t heard, March 4 is an important day. Not only is it my brother’s birthday (Hi Dan!), it’s also National Grammar Day. I’m pretty sure that Quick and Dirty Tips made it up, but that’s okay, America’s all about made up holidays. At my office, we’re getting ready to celebrate Pi Day (March 14 — 3.14, get it?) with a pie themed potluck.

But, back to the celebration of grammar…

In honor of National Grammar Day, I bring you the following links. Explore your pretension to your heart’s content.

1. Top Ten Grammar Myths (Hey, it’s Q&DT’s things, I had to link to one of their articles.)

2. Singular “they” and the many reasons why it’s correct (I’m not quite sure that I can get behind this one…)

3. My personal recommendation for the Grammar Day theme song — Oxford Comma. Although I totally care about oxford commas. I have an ongoing battle with one of my co-workers about this very issue.

And remember, good grammar costs nothing.
