Punctuation


Meet period

Meet Period

  • What it does:

    Separates ideas

  • What it “says”:

    “We are done with this thought. Let’s move on.”

  • What it cannot do:

    Connect ideas

  • It’s kind of like a:

    Wall that divides two properties


Meet comma

Meet Comma

  • What it does:

    Joins a smaller idea to the main idea

  • What it “says”:

    “And one more thing that connects here . . .”

  • What it cannot do:

    Connect two big ideas (ICs)

  • It’s kind of like a:

    Hook connecting a train car to the engine


Meet semicolon

Meet Semicolon

  • What it does:

    Connects two main ideas (ICs)

  • What it “says”:

    “Here’s some information; wait, here’s some more”

    “Let’s join up and finish this together!”

  • What it cannot do:

    Connect two dependent clauses

  • It’s kind of like a:

    Door between two rooms

    Bridge between two islands


Meet colon

Meet Colon

  • What it does:

    Shows examples that support a statement

  • What it “says”:

    “Here’s an/some example(s)”

  • What it cannot do:

    End a sentence

  • It’s kind of like a:

    Presenter at the Oscars (introducing nominees)

    Sports announcer naming players before the game

    Bridge connecting the USA of Main Ideas to Key List


Listen up

Listen up:

  • You should know this fact: a colon can be used to introduce and emphasize important ideas EVEN WHEN THERE IS NO LIST

  • Here is one more reminder: there is not always a list after a colon.

  • Something else besides a list can come after a colon: one really important statement.


Try this

Try this:

  • Holicong “sevvies” must remember one thing:

  • Teachers repeat the same refrain all year:

  • Sometimes there is only one right way to act:

  • There he was, standing right in front of me:

  • There he was, standing right in front of me: Godzilla.
