National Grammar Day is an annual celebration to emphasize the importance of grammar. Some people suggest that grammar is a set of rules for language, but it is a system for understanding language. Understanding the system and the structure helps us to understand each other.
Established by Martha Brockenbrough, author of Things That Make Us [Sic] and founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar, National Grammar Day is celebrated on March 4.
As writers and editors, we know the importance of grammar. It is something many of us are paid to use correctly.
