    Default The Importance of Punctuation

    Dear John:

    I want a man who knows what love is all about.

    You are generous, kind, thoughtful. People who are not

    like you admit to being useless and inferior. You have

    ruined me for other men. I yearn for you. I have no

    feelings whatsoever when we're apart. I can be forever

    happy--will you let me be yours?

    Ah yes,well done. My wife and I regularly groan at the standard of spelling, grammar and punctuation displayed particularly in our media. This must limit clear communication. One of our pet hates is the death of the adverb in the minds of sports commentators. To quote my old english teacher at Corrimal High School, a Mr Starling (a near lone educator surrounded by teachers), "Good english should be clear,concise and precise".

    Today, I was flirting via text with a coworker. Things started getting heated, and I wanted to send her a sexy picture. I asked if she had any suggestions. She said, "Your nuts!" She meant, "YOU'RE nuts." I sent her a photo of my junk. I offended a co-worker with incriminating evidence. FML

    Without a standard for written words, the english language would be confusing. If I wrote the words as they are pronounced by many Australian knuckle draggers, they would be something like this below.

    Wal an is mates go tur barby fora coupla drinks wiff is missus stain ome lookin arfta the gids.

    (Wal says to Nev)

    Gee Nev ya missus face looks like sheez been chasin parked gars.

    (Wal doesn`t see the funny side of it and everyone goes home)

    What is it with them there brackets. Some not there and others quite the wrong bracket. Indeed, you cannot, properly that is, just plant a bracket in your sentence: Bracket - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
