Today is National Grammar Day!!! National Grammar Day has only been celebrated for 4 years (since 2008) And to celebrate I have decided to share with you these 10 Grammar Myths. Are they true or false? What do you think? How good are you at English Grammar?

  • 1. A run-on sentence is a really long sentence.
  • 2. You shouldn’t start a sentence with the word “however.”
  • 3. “Irregardless” is not a word.
  • 4. There is only one way to write the possessive form of a word that ends in “s.”
  • 5. Passive voice is always wrong.
  • 6. “I.e.” and “e.g.” mean the same thing.
  • 7. You use “a” before words that start with consonants and “an” before words that start with vowels.
  • 8. It’s incorrect to answer the question “How are you?” with the statement “I’m good.”
  • 9. You shouldn’t split infinitives.
  • 10. You shouldn’t end a sentence with a preposition.

Stay tuned for the results….
