It’s National Grammar Day

By Sharon

If you’re reading this blog, then you’ll be happy to know that we have our own day. The Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar (SPOGG), has designated March 4th National Grammar Day.

The Society says it’s for ‘pen-toters appalled by wanton displays of Bad English’ and for ‘people who crave good, clean English’. We are those people, so check out SPOGG and their blog. (I’m having a Dr Seuss moment.)

Editor note: This was supposed to get published yesterday; our apologies.

    Even if “March 4th” sounds like a sentence, there is no such thing. It is simply March 4, the title of the book notwithstanding. The only “th” you’ll find on a standard calendar is in the word month. You might refer to the 4th of March, but the date is simply March 4.
    Or is this so evident that it’s all a big inside joke, and I’m the first to take the bait?

    where can use has/have

    Yes. Our apologies 🙂 .

    That was a comma splice.

    This was supposed to get published yesterday, our apologies.

    The only way to justify “our apologies” being part of the sentence is to use a semicolon after “yesterday.” No?

    Nice post, Deb. 🙂 It is cool, isn’t it?

    I certainly would have mentioned this yesterday if I’d known, but I DID write a post yesterday about how March 4th is the only day on the calendar that is an actual, complete sentence . . . So, that was kind of grammatical, right?

    How cool that we have our own Day, though!
