Punctuation power!

Just a nice collection of punctuation-related posters. Some are funny, some are sweet, all of them are great I think!








From Lynne Truss (2003) Eats, shoots and leaves 


In Spanish, the presence of a graphic accent marks the difference 
between "nothing" and the imperative form of "swim"
-What happens?
-Nothing (should be swim!)
- What?
- Nothing
- Idiot!







Always remember!

  2. I teach punctuation in class. And sometimes I find it kinda dry. It's good that you have funny pictures to spice up punctuation. I'm going to use them in my future classes. Thanks for this post!

  7. Grammarly Cost
    Language is an important part of expressing ourselves to the whole world. It is needed while we are speaking to someone and also when we are writing something. The language that we talk often tends to have colloquialisms, and the grammar isn't always perfect. But it does reflect into our writings. Along with that, we aren't always able to write in perfect grammar.
