It’s very important to know the punctuation marks, their meanings, and when to use them in order to produce a good piece of writing - and more importantly, to convey the correct message.
Example: • A woman , without her man , is nothing.
• A woman ; without her , man is nothing.
Punctuation has made the same sentence mean two exactly opposite things!
In addition to learning and practising the rules of punctuation in this unit, students will find additional examples of sentences that illustrate the importance of correct usage of punctuation and how it affects meaning.
