National Grammar Day 2013: Quick, explain the difference between 'affect' and 'effect'

March 4 is National Grammar Day 2013. Don't know how to celebrate? We can help.

Fortunately, the holiday has its own website. The site includes lots of cool resources, including a recipe for a Grammartini -- for those 21 and older, of course.

You can also celebrate National Grammar Day by publicly noting other people's grammatical errors. If you opt for this strategy, proceed at your own risk.

Or, simply use the day to improve your own grammar skills. If you need a starting point, visit Grammarly, an online grammar checker that's billed as "your personal grammar coach."

Discussion time: When it comes to incorrect grammar usage, what's your biggest pet peeve?

Ledger-Enquirer is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
