Rejoice, grammarians: our day is upon us. To most, March 4th is just another day, but to us, it’s Anal-Retentive English Major Christmas!
How to celebrate? We recommend checking out the day’s official site, especially its list of the Top Ten Grammar Myths—Exposed! The Huffington Post has a slideshow of the worst grammar mistakes ever made. We alway’s enjoy railing against Apostrophe Abuse, this blog literally blows our minds, and The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks is generally good for a “laugh.” Or maybe you should just get comfy with a slice of pie (pie is the traditional food of National Grammar Day—or as of this post it is) and peruse one of our favorite grammar books: Eats, Shoots & Leaves, The Deluxe Transitive Vampire (the perfect grammar guide for the Twilight set!), and of course, The Elements of Style (Illustrated).
Following one of the Unwritten Rules of the Internet, since we are posting about grammar, somewhere in this post we will no doubt have made an unnoticed and exceedingly appalling grammatical mistake.
