Celebrate National Grammar Day

National Grammar Day is March 4, and we encourage everyone to celebrate in both creative and fun ways. We use grammar, not just for writing, but for speaking and reading as well. The beauty of language is something we can all appreciate – not just on one day, but all year long.

Here are some ideas to celebrate Grammar Day:

  • Write a haiku.
  • Rewatch a classic Schoolhouse Rock video. How about Conjunction Junction?
  • Tell a punny dad joke. Here’s one:

Q: What do you call a can opener that doesn’t work?
A: A can’t opener

  • Take a grammar quiz, then brag to your friends about your awesome score.

Here are some cool facts about the English language:

  • The shortest complete sentence in English is “I am,” which is composed of a subject and a verb.
  • The word “set” has the most definitions of any word in the English language with more than 400 different meanings.
  • The longest palindromic word in the English language is “deified.”
  • The longest word in the English language, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, is “pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis,” which refers to a lung disease caused by the inhalation of fine silica dust.
