More End Punctuation Questions
This lesson covers end punctuation: that is, the punctuation marks that come at the end of a sentence. These are the period, the question mark, and the exclamation point.
A period is the most common end punctuation. It is used to end any sentences that are not direct questions or exclamation. A period is used for a basic sentence like this one.
A question mark is used after a direct question, like What’s the capital of France? Question marks are also used after polite requests, as in May I please have your phone number?
An exclamation point is used after a passionate or urgent sentence or phrase, like Wow! or Look out behind you!
