After following the link to this from Catriona’s post I have now spent a good hour or so at work browsing through the other punctuation blogs. Is this the most productive use of my time? Well, arguably not I suppose. But, I do teach writing and literacy in some form so it could also be argued that such blogging around is absolutely ESSENTIAL to my working day.
My favourite is the one on apostrophes because we have had an email apostrophe incident already today at work which really bugged me. But what I really need is a blog on the semicolon. However, I don’t think I’m the one to write it as they are my absolute punctuation downfall. I mean could there have been one between those previous two sentences? I’m never sure……If in doubt, leave it out.5 Comments »
