National Grammar Day
National Grammar Day is celebrated on March 4 of every year. Languages are something to celebrate, and some peoples may suggest that Grammar is a set of rules to frame the language. But it is a system to learn or understand the language. Understanding the system and the structure always helps us to understand the language and to learn the new languages. Even though there are some hard rules in grammar, it helps us to learn the language. Hence National Grammar Day is a day to praise the nature of Grammar and assist the peoples to realize the importance of Grammar in a language.
“I don’t know the rules of grammar. If you are trying to persuade the people to do something or to buy something, it seems to me you should use their language, the language they use every day, and the language in which they think. We try to write in the Vernacular.” – David Ogilvy.
History of National Grammar Day
In 2008, Martha Brockenbrough, the founder of society for the promotion of proper Grammar and the author of “Things That Make Us,” founded the National Grammar Day. She sees the word abused very much and abused and only would not stand for another instance of the poor innocent language that treated poorly in her presence. So she declared that all verbs, adverbs, nouns, and adjectives should deserve a day when people stood up for own rights. There should be no more apostrophes be lost, forgotten or misplaced. And there should be no more we find commas left out and proper nouns in lower cases. For that, she wrote “Things that Makes us” to spread the word about poor grammar.
