Grammar Land: Or Grammar In Fun for the Children of Schoolroom-Shire, by M. L. Nesbitt

Original Copyright: 1878


What is Grammar-land? Where is Grammar-land? Have you ever been to Grammar-land? Wait a minute and you shall hear. You will not find Grammar-land marked on the globe, and I never saw a map of it; but then, who ever saw a map of Fairy-land? and yet you have all heard of that, and know a great deal about it, of course. Well, Grammar-land is a place every bit as real as Fairy-land, and much more important. The Fairy Queen is all very well, and a very great little queen in her way; but Judge Grammar! great, stern, old Judge Grammar, is far mightier than any Fairy Queen, for he rules over real kings and queens down here in Matter-of-fact-land. Our kings and queens, and emperors too, have all to obey Judge Grammar’s laws, or else they would talk what is called bad grammar; and then, even their own subjects would laugh at them, and would say: “Poor things! When they were children, and lived in Schoolroom-shire, they can never have been taken to Grammar-land! How shocking!” And Judge Grammar himself — well, I cannot say what he would do, as I suppose such a thing never really happened; for who could imagine a king or queen saying, “I is,” or “you was,” or “it wasn’t me.” No one speaks in that way except people who have never heard of Judge Grammar…. to read more.

  7. Sharon says:

  8. Kris says:

    Is there a link to the answers somewhere? Thanks!

  9. Heather Webster says:

    Is there another book called Matter-Of-Fact-Land for math that is available? It was mentioned in the Grammarland book and I was just wondering if it was a real book. Thank you, Heather Webster

    I like your GrammarLand pages! I made some myself (much less professional-looking) before looking for some answers to the questions in Grammarland. Do you have an answer key for the work sheets? The first few are easy but near the end I find myself lost at times.

  11. Jenny says:

    Thanks so much for your hard work and for sharing with others! These are GREAT!

    I am so glad I am not the only one looking for the answers to the GrammarLand chapters. We stopped using it because I wasn’t sure what the answers were… HELP!!!

    • I went through the book with my daughter, so the answers are really obvious. I no longer have the book to share the answers. I will offer to you as every other person commenting about needing them. 1. If you get the answers or the blog post where the answers are so I can share. OR 2. Would you like to send me the book? I will look up the answers to post them. Sorry, I cannot be of any help at this time. 😦
