Great Punctuation

Sunday, January 26, 2020

“I wouldn’t deny that there’s joy in knowing a set of grammar rules; there is always joy in mastery of some branch of knowledge. But there is much more joy in becoming a reader who can understand and explain how it is that a punctuation mark can create meaning in language that goes beyond just delineating the logical structure of a sentence. Great punctuation can create music, paint a picture, or conjure emotion.”

~ Cecelia Watson, Semicolon: The Past, Present, and Future of a Misunderstood Mark, 2019
