Welcome to Correct Punctuation.
This web site is intended as a brief guide to English punctuation. The site isn't meant to be a comprehensive discussion of the history and future of punctuation marks or even a detailed study of correct punctuation as it's used (and abused) today. It's only here to offer a quick guide to the basics.
For more detailed information about English punctuation, how to use it and where it came from, take a look at the recommended books. For a comprehensive list of the books available, click here (if you're in the US, try here).
