Punctuation in English

Punctuation is the use of special symbols that we add to writing to separate phrases and sentences to show that something is a question, etc.



Punctuations marks are the marks, such as period ( full stop ), comma and semicolon, used in writting to seperate sentences and their elements and to clarify meaning.

When we are writing, punctuation marks are essential. They show us (the reader or the speaker) where sentences start and finish. And if they are used properly, they make our writing or sentences easy to understand.
