Punctuation marks are symbols or characters used in written language to provide structure, clarity, and meaning to text. They serve various purposes, including indicating pauses, separating ideas, and conveying emphasis. Here’s a description of some common punctuation marks and their uses

When to Use a Comma Before “And”?

  • by

Use commas before “and” when joining two independent clauses to form a compound sentence. Sometimes, a comma is used after ‘and’ in a series or list.

When to Use I.e. (I.e. vs. E.g.)

I.e. is Latin for id est, meaning ‘in essence’. In English, this is understood as ‘that is to say’, or ‘in other words’.

What Are Acronyms?

Acronyms are a type of abbreviation where each word in a series or phrase forms a single word that’s pronounced differently, like YOLO (You Only Live Once).
