Abstract

The guide we suggest is more of a practical source. The first part of it illustrates the uses of punctuation marks. By giving sentences from prominent writers for both examples and exercises, we hope to show the full range of possibilities for punctuation in contemporary writing. If you study the examples carefully, you will gain understanding of how to use each punctuation mark in your own writing. Besides learning how to use punctuation correctly, you will see how punctuation can give you the freedom to write new kinds of sentences and express ideas in more effective ways. Surely, there is one supreme rule: that punctuation is best which best serves to make writing subtle, supple, delicate, nuanced and efficient. Of course you can write using only periods and commas for punctuation. You can cook using only salt and pepper for seasoning. But why do it when there are so many seasonings pleasing to a mature palate? -George Will The second part of the guide is dedicated to mechanics - conventional rules such as the one requiring capitalisation or the first word of a sentence. You need to follow the conventions so that your writing will look the way formal writing is expected to look. Finally, the book is followed by the appendix which is a compact reference guide aiming to help students understand the corrections made by the instructor.
