Warning for the squeamish: there’s some mild bad language in this article, forwarded to me by Laura Ingle who rightly thought that it would make me laugh. And I’m sure it will appeal to many of you too. If you’re already aware that dashes and hyphens come in a number of different and precise options, and are capable of proofreading accordingly, you’ll definitely appreciate this tongue-in-cheek article from US publisher Melville House. And if you’re not, it could just open up a whole new world of punctuation possibilities.
