The Seven Deadly Sins of Punctuation And How You Can Avoid Them

    Curtis Newbold of The Visual Communication Guy created the above infographic which cleverly displays and discusses the seven deadly sins of punctuation. Curtis quite right states in his post:

    Punctuation can completely change meanings. Consider this now-famous sentence where the words remain the same, but the punctuation changes:

    A woman, without her man, is nothing.
    A woman: without her, man is nothing.

    Two perfectly fine sentences. Two completely different meanings. When punctuation gets messed up, so does the intended meaning of the writer.

    So, if you know someone who just throws commas, periods and colons around all over the place you send them this! We’re just saving them from the eternal torment of punctuation purgatory; it’s not an easy job but someone has to do it.
