National Grammar Day is observed across the United States each year on March 4th.
According to Global Language Monitor, the estimated number of words in the English language is 1,025,109. There is some controversy over that figure, but it’s safe to say it is over a million.
Language is something to celebrate. Some people might suggest that grammar is a set of rules for language, but it is a system for understanding language. Understanding the system and the structure helps us to understand each other better and can help us to learn new languages.
There are some hard and fast rules in grammar, though. Even some of those come up for debate from time to time. Have you ever heard of the Oxford comma?
HOW TO OBSERVE
Do your best to use proper grammar and use #NationalGrammarDay to post on social media.
Martha Brockenbrough, founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar, designated National Grammar Day in 2008.
