Is punctuation...."to be or not to be", I guess this is the question! Alas! To be dramatic
or show our nature and personality it is a definate yes!
to strong use of this lovely tool. I want to show how I tend to use punctuation marks...because I like to "show off " a little bit, by using the flourish(es)
given to us by punctuation, to show better, my way of thinking and expressing myself. I especially enjoy the JOYS OF PUNCTUATION
....now that the computer is a regular format for my writings I tend to
add all the colorful things such as the italics and bold even more than when I write on paper
. I think it is a "nice" perogative to have the choice
of these uses, to empahsise
For this reason I will go back through....what I have just written, adding things in an editing fashion, in order to add my flourish
(like spices added to food) that people can feel me better.... (do you) get my drift?
To end, punctuation is a whole lot of fun
!!! It adds "spice"
to your words, and I can see nothing wrong
with that! So try to just enjoy this form of English as a happy tool, to better get your message across... clearly, and consisely! And enjoy
learning to express yourself better with this tool. Because as has been shown in other posts it is very useful to make emphasis where it is needed. It alleviates misunderstanding too.
Of course as you learn to write, in English...you will
learn to use punctuation so please do not stop writing!
because you don't know it yet, I (WE) still want to know you
no matter how simple you write....do not feel badly
because some of us are not even bi-lingual and may know nothing about your native tongue... so we respect you
participating and learning the English language!
It is fun!
