Learning English Grammar : Punctuation

Assalamualaikum wbt,

As you all know, Punctuation in any languages is very important, because it could bring a very big meaning to anything that we wrote or said. Therefore, having punctuation in certain sentences would create proper sentences. 

What is Punctuation?

According to Wikipedia, punctuation means "the use of spacing, conventional signs, and certain typographical devices as aids to the understanding and correct reading, both silently and aloud, of handwritten and printed texts." Punctuation just does not mean Commas, it has a lot more. You may click on the given link to find more on punctuation.

Students usually have this feeling of omitting punctuation mark, I do not know whether they do not know where to put punctuation mark or they just need to write it fastly. *whatever they were writing about.

Let m give you a few examples,

1. my friend Mary lives in kuala lumpur.

2. He is reading the straits times.

So, could you find what is wrong with these sentences? 

1. 'my' should be 'My'.
2. 'kuala lumpur' should be 'Kuala Lumpur'
3. There should be commas in the sentence after the word 'friend' and 'Mary'.

So, could you elaborate more on the second sentence? Yes, I really think you could do it.

There are lots of punctuation marks, such as comma, full-stop, question mark, exclamation mark and many more. You just need to know how to use these punctuation, welll, it just add colour to your writings. Yes.

That is all from me. Thank you.

Assalamualaikum wbt
