Making a Point: The Pernickity Story of English Punctuation

David Crystal

Summary

The triumphant new volume in David Crystal's classic series on the English language combines the first history of English punctuation with a complete guide to how to use it.Behind every punctuation mark lie a thousand stories. The punctuation of English, marked with occasional rationality, is founded on arbitrariness and littered with oddities. For a system of a few dozen marks it generates a disproportionate degree of uncertainty and passion, inspiring organisations like the Apostrophe Protection Society and sending enthusiasts, correction-pens in hand, in a crusade against error across the United States.
