Booking Through Thursday – Grammar

Booking Through Thursday asks: In honor of National Grammar Day … it IS “March Fourth” after all … do you have any grammar books? Punctuation? Writing guidelines? Style books? More importantly, have you read them? How do you feel about grammar in general? Important? Vital? Unnecessary? Fussy?

I have a copy of The Elements of Style and I do use it. I can’t say that I’ve read the book cover to cover but I do flip through it a lot.

I think grammar is important but I don’t profess to be an expert. I have vague memories of high school English classes where grammar was a topic but that’s it. Sometimes I do think it can be fussy but it does help ensure we all understand each other in the end.

Any thoughts about grammar you’d like to share?

  1. I really need to get a copy of Eelments of Style. I like to play with grammar but haven’t even cracked the book. Thanks for the reminder!
