Punctuation Research – College Humor
From this website you can see that they have designed punctuation that could be used because there isn’t a usable source of punctuation that could be used for the evolving use of text through the use of social networking and through texting in shortened forms of words. Other punctuation has been designed so that the tone of voice and interpretation can be read through the text it is presented in.
Other punctuation has been created to be used for either one punctuation or another or two words that are are constantly used one after the other e.g. and/or. The Hemi-Demi-Semi Colon was just designed or people who always never seem to know which of the correct punctuation to use and so made a type of punctuation that could be used in all situations.
Other punctuation to demonstrate or narrate text to add more context have also been designed like the ‘Dramatic pause’ punctuation for when … just isn’t enough and also to have a piece of text narrated by a certain celebrities voice using an image of their face before and after the text.
