The period, question mark, and exclamation mark are the Three Musketeers of punctuation: all for one and one for all. Here's why

  • They are all end marks; that is, they are used at the end of a sentence.
  • All three marks of punctuation have the same function: to indicate a full stop.
  • They all show the end of a complete thought.
  • They can all prevent run-on sentences


Unit objectives:

by the end of this unit, you will be able to:

  • Identify the many uses of the period.
  • use question mark at the end of interrogative sentences.
