We all know how to use a Period. See? I literally just used one there. But we don’t all know about Colons, Semi-Colons, and Asterisks.
This guide will teach you how to use the simplest, most common Punctuations (.¿!), the uncommon ones (*-;:), and any others in between.
NOTE: These are easy, and common Punctuations. Skip if necessary.
!: Exclamation Mark. Used to add Exclamation (Duh), and emphasis to a sentence. Also used to Express Joy, Anger, and Sadness.
?: Question Mark. A sign used after Questions.
“”: Quotation Mark. Used to Quote a phrase, sentence, or any other variation of something someone once said.
&: And Sign, or whatever you choose to name it. Used to replace the word “And”. Generally used for Titles.
%: Percentage Sign. Used to give percentages.
(): Parentheses. Used to add something to a Paragraph.
#: Number Sign. Put before numbers when listing things in numerical form.

; : Semi-Colon. Used to connection two independent clauses. (EXAMPLE: I Saw a dog today; She was fluffy)
*: Asterisk. Used to mark certain words for various reasons. Often used to mark a certain word, or phrase for the point of showing the meaning (Read: Definition) of said word, or phrase after the text is over, or at the bottom of the page.
: Brackets. Used to add text to a quote for the meaning of making the quote seem to make more sense, or to add more descriptions to the text while also not infringing, and falsifying the text. (EXAMPLE: “The Flashing [Blue] Lights Hurt My Eyes” The Witness Remarked)

You have no use for the “¿”, Or “¡” Simbals unless you are using Spannish.
There is no use for “+”, “×”, “÷”, “=”, or “^”, unless you are incorporating Mathematicians into your Article.
You have no use for “€”, “£”, “¥”, “?”, or “$” unless you are incorporating Money values into your Article.
