A client kicked off one of my writing classes by announcing that today, March 4, is National Grammar Day. That comment immediately focused participants on a reason for attending the workshop. Co-sponsored by the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar (SPOGG), the event aims to raise public awareness about linguistic correctness in everyday usage. The SPOGG website (http://nationalgrammarday.com/) offers several grammar tips and links to other helpful websites.
My thanks to Steven Choi, Director of Training and Performance Evaluations at the School Construction Authority, for bringing National Grammar Day to my attention.
