National Grammar Day Contest: The AnaGrammar Game
March forth, good grammarians! National Grammar Day is right around the corner—Monday, March 4—but we can’t wait to celebrate our ability “to speak well, write well, and help others do the same.” To kick off our grammar festivities, we give you the AnaGrammar Game!
Unscrambled the grammar-related anagrams below and submit your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday at midnight (PST) for a chance to win your choice of a Copyediting audio conference CD ($49 value). We’ll draw a winner* from the entries with the most correct answers, revealing the winner and the answers on Monday during our Grammar Day celebration.
