What Is Grammar?
Grammar is the system and structure of a language, the set of rules used to create phrases and sentences to convey meaning. The English language contains more than one million words so we can precisely express our thoughts, ideas, feelings, emotions, perspectives, desires, messages, and actions.
The more you know about English grammar, the better you can communicate and say what you mean–the better you can be understood.
National Grammar Day was established in 2008 to bring attention to the importance of grammar and to promote proper grammar usage. Although grammar and usage rules can be cumbersome and contradictory, we can all make small, simple improvements to better communicate personally and professionally.
While most people don’t acknowledge or even know about National Grammar Day, it gives us writers the opportunity to pester everyone else about writing the right way!
