Punctuation?? Grammar rules??? • wuts the point? • i mean. she thot inglish was stoopid and she turned out fine… Right??? Think about this… • How do people communicate when they are face to face? Here are some ways… • • • • • 1. words 2. tone of voice 3. facial expressions 4. body language 5. according to sociologists… Simply put… • We need punctuation to imitate or reflect how we speak to each other, and to make it easier to understand • E.g. != Other examples? • How might someone express a “?” while speaking? • A comma or period? • An exclamation mark? …you get it yet? Here’s a helpful writing tip for the future: • The best way to check your punctuation is to read your writing aloud. Wherever you pause, or whenever you raise or lower your voice you need a punctuation mark. Next: • And Grammar? • Let’s start with a couple hyperbolic examples, shall we? Extreme Examples: • 1. Him like mikdonals foods sow much. That why him fats. • 2. Us will goed on a trips to Spayn! • 3. dogs is mine favoritest animals to plays wif. Lets try again, shall we? • 1. He likes McDonalds food too much. That is why he is fat. • 2. We will go on a trip to Spain. • 3. Dogs are my favorite animal to play with. • What’s the difference? Here’s the point… • Grammar, regardless of the country or the language, is a fundamental principle for written communication -- the better the grammar, the clearer the message and its intended meaning. Not only that, but the way you write is a mirror of how clear (or messy) your thoughts are. That’s a big reason why we learn to edit and revise our papers… to make our thoughts as clear, logical, and understandable to other people as possible. And that is what communication is all about.
