“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 www.nationalpunctuationday.com 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.
