Unpunctuated Challenge 7: Exclamations

Adding some emphasis!

Exclamation marks can be used to add emphasis to a sentence. They can also indicate strong emotions like ANGER or humour or excitement!

Some people use multiple exclamations to indicate extra emotion!! But others argue they lose their impact if you use too many of them!!!

An exclamation mark can be combined with a question mark to create another punctuation mark called an interrobang. Interrobangs can be used for ironic questions… but are they really necessary?!

You can find additional resources for using exclamation marks here including making an ‘exclamation comic’.

You can find more quirky facts about punctuation in the Monster Punctuation book!
