13 Punctuation marks you never knew you needed (but SO do)
February 5, 2015

Do you ever get the feeling that full stops, commas, hyphens, dashes, colons, semicolons, apostrophes, quotation marks, question marks, exclamation marks, parentheses, brackets, braces and ellipses just aren’t enough to satisfy your everyday language needs? Here are some little-known punctuation marks which I (personally) think we should all be using. For those of you who are really keen, I’ve also included the keystroke keys so that you can go ahead and show off.

THE INTERROBANG: We’ve all experienced the feeling of shock and question simultaneously (“You don’t know about The Definite Article?!”) which is normally signified with one exclamation and one question mark. It can, however, be replaced with the interrobang.
[Image: interrobang.png?itok=IuAdW7fG]
Keystroke keys:
  • HTML: &#8253
  • Unicode: U+203D
  • Word: Alt + 8253
  • If all else fails: `:-O / :O`

THE RHETORICAL QUESTION MARK/ PERCONATION POINT: Simply a backwards question mark, proposed all the way back in the 1580s by Henry Denham.

Keystroke keys:
  • Unicode: U + 2E2E
  • If all else fails:`;-.`

THE IRONY MARK: Although it may appear very similar to the previous perconation point, it’s actually ever so slightly elevated, a little rounder and smaller. Unlike most punctuation marks, it also precedes the statement so that it is read as initially intended. Hervé Bazin proposed it in 1966, alongside 5 other (soon to be revealed) marks.

Keystroke keys:
  • Unicode: U + 061 F
  • If all else fails: `;-p`

THE LOVE POINT: Consisting of two exclamation marks, one of which is mirrored (but both sharing the same point – n’aww) it’s another of Bazin’s proposals intended to indicate affection. Although it’s probably been replaced by the very 2007-esque <3, it’s a sweet proposal.

Keystroke keys:Love_point
  • Word: Alt + 3
  • If all else fails: `<3`

THE ACCLAMATION POINT: Another of Bazin’s designs, he described it as “the stylistic representation of those two little flags that float above the tour bus when the president comes to town”. How thoughtful. It represents the idea of welcoming someone, so might be used in the context of “I’m so happy to see you [acclamation point]”

Keystroke keys:
  • If all else fails: `:-D`

THE CERTITUDE POINT: Bazin’s at it again with this punctuation mark used to end declarations with steady conviction.
[Image: certitude-point.png]
Keystroke keys:
  • If all else fails: `]:-|`

THE DOUBT POINT: The opposite of the certitude point, this one can be called upon if you ever need to end your sentence with a note of skepticism.
[Image: doubt-point.png]
Keystroke keys:
  • If all else fails: `(:- /` ¹

THE AUTHORITY MARK: Bazin’s last proposal, the authority mark is used to give your sentences an air of expertise, or to indicate when advice should most definitely be taken. “Read The Definite Article [authority mark]”.
[Image: Certitude_point1.png]
Keystroke keys:
  • If all else fails: `):-|`

Quote:THE SARCMARK: My favourite of them all, this was proposed by Paul Sak, who branded it as “The easy-to-use punctuation mark to emphasize a sarcastic phrase, sentence or message.”
[Image: SarcMark.png]
Keystroke keys:
  • If all else fails: `:-,`

THE SNARKMARK: An alternative to the Sarcmark, this is again used to indicate that a sentence should be taken beyond its literal meaning. However, UNLIKE the Sarcmark, this one isn’t copyrighted, and it’s also a lot easier to type. You’re welcome.

Keystroke keys:
  • If all else fails: `.~`

THE ASTERISM: This was once used to divide subchapters within books and indicate breaks in long periods of text, but it is now almost always shunned in favour of the (far less funky looking) triple asterix (***). Definitely think we should bring this one back
[Image: asterism.jpg]
Keystroke keys:
  • HTML: &#8258
  • Unicode: U + 2042
  • Word: Alt + 8258
  • If all else fails: `***`

THE EXCLAMATION COMMA AND QUESTION COMMA: Last but not least, these two hybrid marks allow you to be excited or inquisitive without having to end a sentence. Ingenious, eh?
[Image: new-punc.jpg]
Keystroke keys:
  • If all else fails: `:-o`

1. the Doubt Point keystroke keys has an extra space in it here in this posting, because the forum uses part of that as code for a particular smilie Undecided

Is it voluntary? (because if it isn't, what inherently is it?)
And can it be voluntary, if there's indoctrination, intimidation, coercion, threats & initiation of violence?
[not to be confused with asking: can it be said to be "voluntary" even when such is present.?]

Yess!!!

Are you kidding me[Image: qex.gif]

Can anybody delegate an authority they don't have?
Was anybody born with innate authority over anybody else?
Then how did authority nobody had get delegated to those who call themselves government?

Show me my personally signed contract wherein I consented to be governed.

Yess!!! Heart it! Applause nice work[Image: qex.gif]

Skeptical (tho iYe'd want one that flips 'tween a period and a question mark aka signaling end of thought --too easily/habitually signaling a statement/declaration-- but open to critical questioning...) [at about half that ani-speed too, aye?]

On a more serious note, the forum deff could use a smilies rendition of the sarcasm (snarcasm) and rhetorical marks.
