National Grammar Day

Today is National Grammar Day.  

Here is a theme song to celebrate:

When it comes to grammar errors one of the most common issues is the run on sentence. The only requirement for a sentence to be a “run on” is if two independent clauses are shoved together without correct punctuation. For example:

I am blue he is purple.

Those are two independent clauses and without punctuation that sentence is a run on. However, using a comma to splice together two clauses that have no appropriate conjunction is just a comma splice.

Other issues include:

  • pronoun disagreements
  • apostrophe usage
  • subject/verb disagreements
  • misplaced modifiers
  • the wrong form of words being used. For example To, Too, Two
  • the wrong word being used. For example i.e. vs. e.g. I.E. means “in other words; that is to say” while E.G. means “as an example, for example”.
  • double negatives used in sentences
