Daily, we are faced with emails casual or business that break every form of grammatical conformity. And, needless to say, plenty of memes are downright too grammatically embarrassing to share.

I, myself, am a proud Stickler too… a self-proclaimed grammar enthusiast, punctuation perambulator, and word nerd all rolled into one. Lynne Truss gathers us together in a common bond over the necessity to be understood and exclaiming the proper use of the tools given us to do so.

Are they not graceful? Commas serves as a breath of air between thoughts, a divider in lists, a separator that determines which thoughts should socialize together and which should not, and a coraller of subordinate clauses that may preempt semantic escape. The second sentence works out much better for Grandma, we can all agree. A woman, without her man, is nothing. A woman: without her, man is nothing. Theoretically, a comma is said to stand in place of the word and or or before the last item in a list.

Hence, the final comma is not necessary to place before the final conjunction as is standard practice in Britain as well as American journalism. Fowler call for the final comma in a list along with the words and or or. Still yet, individual corporations may subscribe to one or the other particular style. So, the use is still highly argued in both grammatical and social circles.

Colons and Semicolons We often think of the colon and semicolon as newly instated soldiers of the English language. The semicolon was printed by none other than Venetian printer Aldus Manutius the Elder also the inventor of italic typeface during the rise of printing in the 14th and 15th centuries, whose work was subsequently continued by Aldus Manutius the Younger. Proper punctuation is both the sign and the cause of clear thinking.

If it goes, the degree of intellectual impoverishment we face is unimaginable. Sticklers unite!

Amazon , Waterstones Share on Anxious about the apostrophe? Confused by the comma? Stumped by the semicolon? Join Lynne Truss on a hilarious tour through the rules of punctuation that is sure to sort the dashes from the hyphens. We all had the basic rules of punctuation drilled into us at school, but punctuation pedants have good reason to suspect they never sank in. It is not only the rules of punctuation that have come under attack but also a sense of why they matter. Not because I particularly wanted to bare my soul in public, but because her death changed my life and created the conditions for the book to be written.
