March 4 is National Grammar Day! Hooray!
The Tale Of Mr Morton
Rufus Xavier Sarsparilla
Conjunction Junction (What’s Your Function?)
Here’s a bonus, a ridiculously catchy song from “The Electric Company” about adverbs– written by none other than Tom Lehrer. As a side note, why don’t we get musicians of this caliber writing songs for our kids today? Just think; there was a time when they could commission Philip Glass to write music for Sesame Street… but I suppose that rant could wait for national music education day. (When is that?)
Anyway, many happy returns of the day! Pass around a participle and maybe even split open an infinitive. (No, really, it’s OK.) March forth to the National Grammar Day website for many more ways to celebrate. Don’t miss the “Songwriting Hall of Shame” and “Grammar Noir”…
