March 4th is a day for celebrating the nuts and bolts of language itself. It’s National Grammar Day! As an avid reader and long-time writer this is a holiday I can really get behind. I’m the girl who silently fumes over the wrong usage of there/their/they’re in mundane places like Facebook and Twitter and has the Grammar Girl website bookmarked for help in answering my day-to-day grammar questions.
In honor of National Grammar Day I’m sharing a few of my favorite grammar-related items from the Internet. First up is one of my favorite Non Sequitur comics by the fabulous Wiley Miller. Who else is a little perturbed that “Facebook” is now being used as a verb?
Next up is a comment dear to my heart as a blogger. Nothing brings on a slew of comments like a grammatical error! Thank you to the funny folks at ShoeboxBlog.com for this spot-on grammar cartoon.
And finally what good is a holiday celebrating grammar without a good song? Take a moment to listen to this clever ditty created by the Grammar Girl herself, Mignon Fogarty. Join us as we “March Forth on March Fourth!” It’s clever and informative to boot!
