Happy National Grammar Day! 9% of Us Are Grammar Police


It’s National Grammar Day.  And a recent study found almost one in 10 Americans are grammar police.

People were asked how often they correct a close friend or relative if they make a grammatical error.  And 9% said ALWAYS.

41% said sometimes . . . 31% said rarely . . . 15% said never . . . and 4% didn’t answer.

Men are almost twice as likely to be grammar police . . . 12% said they always correct people, compared to 7% of women.

And know-it-all young people are THREE times more likely to be grammar police than older Americans are.

15% of people in their late teens and early 20s said they always correct people’s grammar.  Only 5% of people over 55 said the same.
