Grammar Quiz

A few of you have linked me to various news items from the UK about the new schooling attitude to grammar – thank you and hurray! I hope it might mean we’re raising a generation a little more aware of the joys and pitfalls of our glorious language.

For all those not blessed to live in the Green and Pleasant Land or who just haven’t come acrsso it, here’s a little quiz for you to test yourselves. Enjoy!

In the interests of full disclosure, I’ll admit that I only got 9/10. Although on the one I got wrong, I did think there was a mistake in the question. Clearly, I should have been paying more attention to my gut instinct and read it again!
