Some of us geek out when it comes to grammar, some of us don’t care, and a few of us are asshats about it. Unfortunately, for grammar nerds, our love (fascination, obsession), in regard to the proper use of language has in some ways ostracized us from mainstream society.
We are called names, shunned, ridiculed. It’s quite sad, really.
Not all grammar groupies are the same. Sometimes, we even break the rules. We are human, after all.
In honor of National Grammar Day, take this grammar nerd test and see where you fall on the grammar geek scale.
My result – The Pedant’s Grammarian
You may drive your friends and family nuts, but you would make Strunk and White proud. You love enforcing rules just about as much as you love the rules themselves. For you, grammar truly is one of life’s greatest joys.
