Mind Your Punctuation

Punctuation is important for successful writing. Where the punctuation, like a comma, is placed would change the meaning of the sentence.

This is one good example.

Save him, not kill him.
Save him not, kill him.

The kitties are reminding EJ of its importance.

Full stop

Comma

Colon

Semi-colon

Hyphen

Dash

What wonderful punctuation - Mum says if they'd had those as examples when she was at school life would have been much more fun.

That is well done. We especially like the hyphen. But the comma is good too. You all make such good punctuation. Hope all have a great day.

Katz Tales said...

Love it! Have you seen this classic?



Punctuate this:

“Woman without her man is nothing”

And you will find men write: “Woman, without her man, is nothing.”

And women write: “Woman: Without her, man is nothing.”

Sharon Wagner said...

Oh my. You were so creative today! I'm terrible at punctuation; (Just kidding. I know I should put a period there) But if lessons were this funny, I'd definitely improve in no time.

Gattina said...

Hahaha ! well done !

Katie Isabella said...

That is the best punctuation I have ever seen. xxoo

catsynth said...

Those are some good examples of punctuation marks from the cats.

I'm fond of the word-play sentences where a punctuation modification completely changes the meaning of words.
