Other punctuation marks
There are some infrequently used punctuation marks which can be useful tools in a writer’s chest. These are not punctuation marks that are used in every sentence, nor are they even necessarily used in every text. However, if you learn to use these punctuation marks, your writing will become that much clearer, and you’ll appear more knowledgeable.
These punctuation marks show the reader the fine details. They allow the reader to hear what the author would have said if the text was being read aloud: the reader will be able to “hear” the author raise or lower their voice to show which words are important and which are aside comments, and they’ll be able to “hear” the author’s voice trail off into silence, they’ll “hear” the sharp clip when the author uses a slash between two words. There’s also the aesthetics of the extra punctuation; while you don’t want to clutter your page to the point where it’s illegible, punctuation can break up those long, dull sentences, making your reader pay more attention to the text.
