    Throughout the ages, languages continue to adapt and change. English, being a relatively new language, is a nice example of that. Though the English vocabulary is continually evolving, the system of punctuation has remained constant for the most part. This means that grammar books from 1895 are still applicable today.  Therefore, if the following sentence looks correct to you, perhaps listening to Paul Allardyce's "Stops, or How to Punctuate" would be a good idea. (Summary by Shurtagal)The following sections were read by 2 readers:01 – Introduction: Nicholas James Bridgewater, stepheather02 – The Full Stop: Zachary Brewster-Geisz, Laurie Anne Walden03 – The Comma: Miranda Stinson, Sarah Jennings04 – The Semicolon: Shurtagal, Zachary Brewster-Geisz05 – The Colon: Zachary Brewster-Geisz, Sarah Jennings06 – The Point of Interrogation: Shurtagal, Kara Shallenberg07 – The Mark of Exclamation: Clarica, stepheather08 – The Dash: Sarah Jennings, Clarica09 – Brackets: Shurtagal, Kara Shallenberg10 – The Inverted Comma: Zachary Brewster-Geisz, Kristen McQuillin11 – Italics: Robin Cotter, Clarica12 – The Hyphen: Sarah Jennings, Clarica13 – The Apostrophe: Ada Kerman, Robin Cotter14 – Mark of Ellipses: Clarica, stepheather
