Punctuation power!

Just a nice collection of punctuation-related posters. Some are funny, some are sweet, all of them are great I think!








From Lynne Truss (2003) Eats, shoots and leaves 


In Spanish, the presence of a graphic accent marks the difference 
between "nothing" and the imperative form of "swim"
-What happens?
-Nothing (should be swim!)
- What?
- Nothing
- Idiot!







Always remember!

  2. I teach punctuation in class. And sometimes I find it kinda dry. It's good that you have funny pictures to spice up punctuation. I'm going to use them in my future classes. Thanks for this post!
