periods question marks and exclamation marks

Periods Question Marks and Exclamation Marks

  • Use a period at the end of a declarative sentence, a sentence that is a
    request, and one that includes a mild command.

    Our blue couch will soon be replaced. (declarative sentence)
    Please help me. (request)
    Let’s be quiet. (mild command)

  • Use a period after abbreviations.
    Dr. (Doctor) Mr. (Mister) ft. (foot) in. (inch)
  • Use a question mark at the end of an interrogative sentence.v Have you finished your dinner, Sven?
    Note: The speaker’s exact words should be placed within the quotation
    marks. If those words form a question, place the question mark inside
    the quotation marks.

    Jason asked, ‘‘Is this my slice of pizza?’’

    Note: If the speaker’s exact words are a statement but are within a
    sentence that asks a question, place the question mark outside the
    quotation marks.

    Did Mollie say, ‘‘Tomorrow is the deadline’’?

  • Use an exclamation mark at the end of an exclamatory sentence.

    This is too good to be true!

    Note: If a speaker’s exact words require an exclamation mark, place that
    mark within the quotation marks.

    ‘‘What a great performance!’’ Emma remarked to James.
    Note: If a speaker’s exact words are a statement, and the
    entire sentence is an exclamation, place the exclamation mark
    outside the quotation marks.
    It is hard to believe that Mark ever said, ‘‘I think that you’re right’’!
