Punctuation

This is about as interested in punctuation that I get (though I can occasionally go off on commas).



Your Score: Semicolon


You scored 30% Sociability and 76% Sophistication!




Congratulations! You are the semicolon! You are the highest expression of punctuation; no one has more of a right to be proud. In the hands of a master, you will purr, sneering at commas, dismissing periods as beneath your contempt. You separate and connect at the same time, and no one does it better. The novice will find you difficult to come to terms with, but you need no one. You are secure in your elegance, knowing that you, and only you, have the power to mark the skill or incompetence of the craftsman.

You have no natural enemies; all fear you.

And never, NEVER let anyone tell you that you cannot appear in dialogue!

May you not worry about punctuation today.

What a fun test! I just got a semi-colon too but with 0% sociability and 70% of sofistication!

Ah, I hate when my fingers betray me in a comment and I post. No editing or going back!

Sophistication is in the mind, not the fingers...

When my daughter was in middle school, the class had to which punctuation mark they were most like. When she told me this, I immediately told her that I thought she was a semicolon. When she researched it, she agreed.

My kid. A semicolon.

It makes a mother proud.
