I have a confession to make, i’m a terrible over-punctuation-marker! I have never been good with these little suckers – I’m a huge fan of the extended ellipsis……. and I get my “quotation marks’ all wrong. I am lucky in that in my professional life I have two amazing women called Cate and Antonia who keep me in check. If you’re not so lucky, he’s a rather awesome infographic on how to use punctuation marks courtesy of TheVisualCommunicationGuy.com
How to use punctuation marks – the idiot’s guide
The English language is just a nasty piece of work, with it’s random pronunciation and cryptic spelling. And yes, I feel like a fraud posting about how to use punctuation marks – (should there be a hypen there? Wait which dash it is? Does this actually require parentheses? Aren’t they called brackets? No wait, the square ones are brackets – really? ) but if you’re like me, you TOTALLY need it. *sigh*
*you can take that sigh as a little extra comment from me.
