We have nouns and proper nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, prepositions, and many other parts of speech! Grammar is all around us, both good and bad. How's yours? Try our grammar quiz to find out!

Chantelle

Quiz WriterChantelle

Chantelle took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say, she found herself immersed in literature from before she was born. She’s been known to tell her friends all about how she can still remember the passages she heard her mother read to her when she was in the womb - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Whether she’s whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on her second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name she refuses to disclose), Chantelle has continued to keep her feet wet with words, as it were. You’re sure to get a kick out of her giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.

Did you know?

The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over the Lazy Dog

This sentence was created in the late 19th century, but do you know what it's called? A pangram sentence is one that uses every single letter of the alphabet at least one time. They are often used to display typefaces and test equipment, to ensure every letter looks as it should, and they also help people develop calligraphy, keyboarding, and handwriting skills. "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" was used first by Western Union to test Telex/TWX data communication equipment to ensure reliability and accuracy.

If a sentence uses every letter of the alphabet only once, it is considered a perfect pangram. Longer pangrams allow the opportunity for humor and thoughtfulness.
