Are you pro-semi-colon? Does the word “irregardless” make you cringe? Do you silently (or not-so-silently) correct your friends’ and family’s grammar mistakes on a regular basis?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, chances are you’re a grammar nerd. It’s cool — a lot of us are, too. Actually, it turns out there are quite a few of you out there. How do we know that? Because we saw lots of you share and comment on our post about witty grammar jokes. And on this post about grammar myths. And on the one about brands’ grammar mistakes.
