Grammar: Punctuation marks
Punctuation marks are also used to avoid ambiguity. For example, «woman, without her man, is nothing» has a different meaning from «woman: without her, man is nothing»
This is a summary of punctuation rules.
Read the punctuation rules and study the examples given.
End punctuation marks:
  1. Full stop , or period (.)
  • Used a full stop at the end of a sentence:
    She stood up and went away. She was furious.
  1. Question marks (?)

  • Used to indicate strong emotions:
    She’s so beautiful!

Commas (,)
  • Commas are used between items in a series or list. The last two items of the series usually do not need a comma between them. They are separated by «and».
    I like spaghetti, fish, pizza and couscous.
Semicolons (;)
  • Semicolons are used instead of a full stop or period to separate independent sentences:
    They woke up early; then they went jogging.
Colons (:)
  • Use a colon to introduce a list:
    He visited three cities last summer holiday: Madrid, Roma and Athens.
  • To introduce an idea or an explanation:
    He had one idea in mind: to see her as soon as possible.
Dashes (—)
