Part 1: Common Stumbling Blocks in Punctuation
One space or two after a period? This class covers the basics of punctuation with more nuance than you might have learned in elementary school. Topics include smart quotes, the hyphen is not a dash, what ellipses are and aren’t, parentheses, restrictive and appositives with commas (or not), serial comma, colons and semicolons, period placement with quote marks and parentheses, and question marks.
