the importance of punctuation

Average: 2.3 (24 votes)


Don’t think that punctuation is important?

Then take a look at this sentence:


A woman without her man is nothing


Now see how meaning changes completely when we add punctuation.


'A woman, without her man, is nothing.'

'A woman: without her, man is nothing.'


The most common punctuation is:


. = full stop/period

This is a comma, isn’t it? = comma

Its an apostrophe = apostrophe

These are quotation marks= quotation marks

; = semi-colon

: = colon

(These are brackets) = brackets

- = hyphen

? = question mark

! = exclamation mark
