Activity 1

Exclamation Marks: Gosh and Golly!

In speech, exclamations are used freely, especially in moments of high passion, as when the dishwasher overflows at 11 P.M. on a Saturday night. In writing, however, it is far more convincing to create emphasis by the force of your words rather than the force of your punctuation. But there will be occasions to use exclamation marks, so here are some guidelines to follow.

Use an exclamation mark after an exclamatory sentence.

Example: “Apparent” is a large, old bossy person who tortures youth!

Exclamatory sentences show excitement or another strong emotion.

  • Someone call 911!
  • The field is on fire!
  • Firemen are amazing!
  • It's snowing!
