March Forth on March Fourth!

Yesterday was National Grammar Day in the United States – a day to celebrate language and the neat things we do with it. National Grammar Day was established in 2008 by Martha Brockenbrough founder of SPOGG (Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar). This year’s sponsor is Mignon Fogarty, host of the handy site Grammar Girl which has been mentioned elsewhere on this blog.

Technically, the imperative to ‘march forth’ to promote good speaking and writing expired yesterday, but the celebration continues on the National Grammar Day website. The site features fun language-related items that can be enjoyed year-round. I recommend the dangerously catchy theme song, ‘March Forth: The Grammar Song‘.
