Summary
Humorous comparative illustrations show that the meaning of a sentence can depend upon the placement of a comma
Summary
We all know the basics of punctuation. Or do we? Through sloppy usage and low standards on the internet, in email, and text messages, we have made proper punctuation an endangered species. Isn't it time to look at our commas and semicolons and see them as the wonderful and necessary things they are? From the invention of the question mark in the time of Charlemagne to George Orwell shunning the semicolon, this lively history makes a powerful case for the preservation of careful punctuation
