The official site for the event, hosted by the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar (SPOGG). The site boasts a Bad Grammar Hall of Fame Playlist, not to mention a Top Ten list of grammar tips. The site also has links to many, many other grammar-related blogs. (Here’s the SPOGG blog.)
Meanwhile, Arnold Zwicky at Language Log is shunning National Grammar Day and its “nastiness”.
I’ll admit, some of the language on the official Grammar Day site does sound a bit militant. Nathan Bierma, writing in the Chicago Tribune, urges a middle ground. He also cites Grammar Girl as hoping for civility in the discussion.
So, instead of celebrating this day cheerfully fault-finding, howzabout we celebrate good grammar where we find it?
How will you celebrate National Grammar Day 2009?
