Punteggiatura

La punteggiatura si utilizza per conferire senso alle frasi, per renderle più chiare e per accentuarle. Serve inoltre ad impostare e strutturare il linguaggio scritto.

L'importanza della punteggiatura diventa subito evidente leggendo questa frase completamente priva di segni di punteggiatura:

Vediamo ora la differenza con i segni di punteggiatura!

Perhaps you don't always need to use commas, periods, colons etc. to make sentences clear. When I am in a hurry, tired, cold, lazy, or angry I sometimes leave out punctuation marks. "Grammar is stupid! I can write without it and don't need it," my uncle Harry once said. He was not very clever, and I never understood a word he wrote to me. I think I'll learn some punctuation - not too much, enough to write to Uncle Harry. He needs some help!
