|A fun guide to the correct use of punctuation from The Oatmeal|
|Not sure when you should be using a semi-colon or apostrophe? Consult this entertaining cartoon style guide from The Oatmeal!|
Here at Wise Owl we take clear English seriously.
Having said this, I've no doubt that we sometimes deviate from our own rules (the problem with occupying the moral high ground is that there's such a long way to fall from it!).
So big thanks to Sam for highlighting the excellent Oatmeal guides on the use of English and punctuation:
The Oatmeal is a website consisting of a series of cartoons and articles created by Matthew Inman.
Here are some excellent summaries of particular aspects of the use of English, as presented by the Oatmeal:
|Using semi-colons||As it says in the screen-shot above: "the most feared punctuation on earth".|
|When to use "whom"||Who versus whom - avoid grammatical faux pas.|
|When to use an apostrophe||How to correctly use this much-abused punctuation character (nothing wrong with split infinitives though).|
