LRW Celebrates National Punctuation Day

“A comma is not a state of being.”

Members of the OU Law Legal Research and Writing department recently celebrated the 9th Annual National Punctuation Day with muffins in the shape of a giant question mark.  National organizers of the celebration use the day to honor “. . . the lowly comma, correctly used quotation marks, and other proper uses of periods, semicolons, and the ever-mysterious ellipsis.”

Visit the website at for more information, including the recipe for the official meat loaf!  You can also purchase T-shirts, posters, and more!  Can you name all thirteen punctuation marks? Unfortunately, the list does not include the interrobang – an exclamation point superimposed on top of a question mark.
