March 4 is Grammer, er Grammar Day
Yes, Virginia, there is such an occasion as Grammar Day.
Do you adore clean, correct sentences? Do ungrammatical advertisements make you cringe? We understand completely, and this is why the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar and MSN Encarta have designated March 4, 2008 as National Grammar Day.
Now you have every excuse to call the attention of someone who spells it attension. Or says irregardless.
I just love these people!
Incidentally, I just received a survey from Chicago Manual asking for feedback about its grammar chapter, which, I must admit, I seldom use. Another reason to take it out from the shelf and use it.
