Insert punctuation marks into the text and create easy to read sentences.
Game instructions to practice correct punctuationClick on a level to get texts where different punctuation marks and capitalization letters have slipped away. Your task is to correct the texts so that they become easy to read again.You need to correct all texts to complete the round. If you get stuck, you can click the button Give up - it will reveal the correct answer and you may see how close you were to make it. The round counts as failed, when you click on that button, but the next time the text comes up, it is probably a bit easier for you to correct it.In some levels you will get feedback on which punctuation marks and capital letters you should use. You can also see how many of these characters you have left to place.
Rules for capitalizationCapitalization means the use of capital letters in a text otherwise written in lower case. A sentence always start with a capital letter. Other words that are always spelled with the first letter in uppercase, even if the word is not the first in a sentence, are proper nouns. Examples of proper nouns are: Peter or London. Use lower case in almost all other situation.
Rules for interpunctuationInterpunctuation means the use of punctuation marks in a text to make it easier to understand. There are three large punctuation marks that almost always ends a sentence. These are:
- A statement ends with a period: (.)
- A question ends with a question mark: (?)
- A command, an interjection or an emphatic declaration should end with an exclamation mark: (!)
There are also other punctuation marks that may be used inside sentences. These are:
- A comma (,) is used to split a sentence into different parts and also to illustrate where there should be a pause.
- A semicolon (;) is used instead of a period between sentences closely related to each other. Do not use uppercase in the sentence after the semicolon.
- A colon (:) is used before a list or an explanation that is preceded by a clause that can stand by itself.
- A dash (-) is used to show an abrupt shift in tone, or hesitation in speech. It is also used to set off an introductory phrase when the word or word-group that follows it constitutes a summation och an amplification. Sometimes it is also used to add qualifying or rectifying information in abrupt parenthetical elements.
