22 Funny Quotes for Grammar & Punctuation Lovers

You could say we’re big believers in using good grammar and correct punctuation. If you’re here, we suspect you might be a Word Nerd too… so we’re all in good company!

It drives us crazy when someone uses the incorrect there, their, or they’re. But if you know the difference between affect and effect or less and fewer, we’re ready to be your best friend! And although some people might not think it matters, we’re ready to argue with anyone who challenges the importance of the Oxford comma.

Okay, okay. We’re not that big of sticklers about grammar and we probably won’t correct yours to your face. We even like to break the rules every once in a while (how many sentences can you find that begin with conjunctions in this post?). But we absolutely do think that having good grammar is cool and that expressing yourself clearly is an excellent skill to have. 

Every time we read an inspiring quote or a well articulated thought (which is every day here at The Type Set Co.!), we’re reminded of why it’s important. Good grammar and correct punctuation are part of communicating well and communicating is how we connect with other people… and connecting with other people is one of the ways we make an impact on the world! So, you could say it’s kind of a big deal.
