Punctuation marks are symbols that we use in sentences and phrases to make the meaning very clear and understood.
They are also the marks, such as period, comma, and parentheses, … used in writing to separate sentences and their elements to clarify the meaning.
This is a group of Punctuation Marks that we are going to talk about in this lesson:
1- Period or full stop: Used at the end of a declarative sentence to mean that the meaning is completely finished in its structure grammatically.
2- Comma: Used to denote a pause in a sentence, and to separate phrases or items in a list.
3- Colon: Used to indicate what is to follow next in sentences, and used also to precede a list of items or a quotation or an explanation.
4- Semi-Colon: Used to link tow independent clauses and to express pauses longer than a coma and shorter than a period.
5- Hyphen; Used to fasten and glue words together to indicate that they have a combined meaning.
6- Ellipsis Mark: Used to separate items in series.
7- Quotation marks: Used to show that someone else has said it.
8- Question marks: used at the end of an interrogative sentence to form a question.
9- Exclamation mark: used to denote shock, surprise, anger, or used in a raised voice
