This day was established in 2008 by Martha Brockenbrough, founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar (SPOGG) and author of Things That Make Us [Sic]. So do us all a favor and cross your I’s, dot your T’s, and making sure that you’re correctly punctuating and structuring your sentences. Watch those apostrophes, too!
But seriously, show you know the simple differences between its and it’s…or your and you’re…what about to and too? Yup – you can both impress people with your grammatical prowess…or make them think you’re a real idiot.
According to Global Language Monitor, the estimated number of words in the English language is 1,025,109. There is some controversy to that number, but it’s safe to say it is over a million. And there are plenty of people who commit grammatical murder every day – do yourself a favor. Don’t be one of them.
