Today, for example, we're celebrating National Punctuation Day! And, while you might think the exclamation point is my favorite punctuation, you'd be wrong.
Which brings us to our exercise:
- Guess my favorite punctuation mark.
- Tell me your favorite.
If you're feeling really adventurous, scroll down on the National Punctuation Day site and check out the baking contest. Let me know if you decide to enter.
I think my favorite punctuation mark and yours are the same. My favorite is the question mark. Is that yours?
I believe your favorite
punctuation mark is the comma. The comma can add nuance to writing but its use requires great skill. You use commas extremely well. My
favorite punctuation mark is the colon: it has guts.
OK ... here's a hint for the rest of you: Although I am very fond of the question mark, and I certainly am comma crazed, neither of those are my favorite.
