Punctuation

Post by Marvin W. on 10th April 2013, 12:13 pm

Is there any punctuation you overuse? I use the semi-colon a lot; I also use the dash a lot -- it's one of my favourite marks of punctuation. It's also really annoying how much people overuse the ellipses... ☞ This is a commonly unused mark of punctuation used to draw attention to something. This mark of punctuation -- called the interrobang -- also commonly unused -- is used to point out an exclamatory question. WHAT THE HECK‽

I only use semicolons when I want to look superior; like this. Smile

Either you use it properly, or you shouldn't use it at all. Pfft.

I use hyphens a lot - considering how much most people use it them. I don't think I overuse it, as in a bad way, but I'm not sure. Wink

I use everything when I need to... though I do make lines with my periods often. I think that punctuation should actually be used more, esp. on the internet.

I definitely agree with that. Just because we're on the net doesn't mean we can start writing like preschoolers. Smile

I agree, as well. My mom has always insisted that we type with correct punctuation, etc. and now I have tons of practice typing. Smile
