What is Punctuation?
Punctuation clarifies and regulates the different text's meanings as it is a set of marks. The term punctuation is a word of Medieval Latin punctuation. It means signs or markings. It is often used to tink or separate the words, clauses, or phrases and to clarify the meaning of certain inflections within a text. For example, we use these signs in a sentence like "Yesterday, rain-fog; today, frost-mist." But what is the way to fascinate the use of hyphens to separate the compound words and commas to separate the phrases.
Periods are used to show a complete thought in the form of a sentence. We call it full stop. For example, I like your dress. We also use it to make abbreviations. For example, Mistress is abbreviated Mrs. - such as Mrs. Jackson.
Commas are used after an introductory phrase and in a list to separate items. We use it as an indicator marking dependent and independent clauses.
For example, in a sentence; There are some mistakes in your work but, overall performance is good.
We used comma to separate clauses. For example: You will need water, detergent, cloth, surface cleaner, broom, and other house cleaning stuff for house cleaning.
