#InfographicInspiration: Punctuation Rules

#InfographicInspiration: Punctuation Rules published on

Lots of handbooks explain how punctuation works, but who wants to read pages of information in a grammar textbook? Today’s #InfographicInspiration won’t eliminate the need to look up how certain rules work; however, it does provide a nice overview of the primary ways that most punctuation marks are used.

I suspect that you will be familiar with a lot of the rules, especially for marks like periods, commas, and exclamation points. Other punctuation marks may be new to you, such as en dashes and em dashes.

If you find anything new to you or need more information on an exclamation, try searching for details on the information on Punctuation on the Purdue OWL site.
