Meaning pf wpebegone (5).png

We are back with another grammar rule. Don’t worry if you’ve been making this mistake before, it’s time to learn and do better next time. This time we are learning about how to space properly with punctuation marks. 

Rule 1

With a computer, use only one space following periods, commas, semicolons, colons, exclamation points, question marks, and quotation marks. The space needed after these punctuation marks is proportioned automatically

Rule 2

Use no spaces on either side of a hyphen. A lot of people make this mistake, hopefully you won’t after reading this. Look at this example to undertsand better. 

Example:
We borrowed twenty-three sheets of paper.

We hope you put what you’ve learnt today into practice. Until next week, keep your grammar in check!
