Do you cringe when you hear very well-educated people say phrases such as ‘it’s more better,’ or ‘I did good on the test,’ or ‘I are tired’? Using proper grammar is very important for many reasons that go beyond you appearing impressive. Today is the perfect day to practice your grammar because it is national grammar day.
March 4th urges you to proofread your work and make grammatical corrections before sending it. That means to check your grammar after you write a manuscript, a blog post, a letter, or an email. You not only want to make a good impression by sending in content with excellent grammar. You also want to speak by using proper grammar, especially if you are giving lectures or going for job interviews. If you use poor grammar during a job interview, you will likely not win the job even if you have an impressive resume. You want to show how intelligent you are. By the way, using poor grammar is not indicative of low intelligence. There are plenty of engineers, doctors, and rocket scientists that use poor grammar.
Often, it is not the individual’s fault for using poor grammar in their written content and verbally. The way you use your grammar has so much to do with the education you received. If your grade-school teachers did not teach you using proper grammar, then it is not difficult to figure out why you don’t use correct grammar during adulthood.
However, there is good news. After typing out content, you don’t need to spend too much time reviewing your grammar. There are plenty of grammar correcting apps you can use to help cut your job making grammatical corrections and proofreading easier. How did national grammar day become a thing? Let’s talk about the history of this day.
History Of National Grammar Day
The establishment of national grammar day started in 2008 by the author Martha Brockenbrough who wrote Things That Make Us [Sic], and she is also the founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar or SPOGG. The former President George W. Bush sent a letter to commemorate the day in that year. The grammar correcting app Grammarly spoke to Martha, and she said her motivation to establish the day was to assist her students with using good grammar in a kind and cheerful way. Students should encourage using good grammar as soon as they begin learning to read and write.
How To Celebrate National Grammar Day
Use the day to have a look at your previous written work and fix any obvious grammatical errors. You can also take an online quiz to evaluate your grammar, and if you want to have a grammar laugh, read the SPOGG blog. Share what you plan to do on March 4th by using #NationalGrammarDay to post on social media.
