I, think, my, favorite, is, probably, the, comma.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s an indicator for a joke here, but it’s also an equivalent of – in Japanese. You can also make emoticon with it 0~0

The ”!☣!!☢!☠!!!!”

Period, full-stop, end of story. No more discussion.

@DoNotKnowMuch Are you channeling Boy George? Comma Chameleon?

The ellipsis. So much has been said by so little.

The em dash.

Not the Rainbow Dash?

The dash – and the three little dots, of course…

semi-colons. They are so versatile.

IBD patients love their semicolon jokes….:P

@Mariah – I’m so sorry, I laughed way too hard at that. Ow. My nose. Coffee. Ow.

Mariah's avatar

Sorry about your nose! I have a shirt that just has a big semicolon on the front. It’s a secret code to help us find each other.

That is awesome.

By far, italics and the em dash—I blame my early exposure to the prose of J.D. Salinger and Tom Wolfe for that.

So to speak.

The colon. Hard to use right, but elegant when deployed correctly and not to excess.

ZEPHYRA's avatar

Got to be the exclamation !

Coloma's avatar

I like exclamation points*!!!!!!!!!!!!!* @ZEPHYRA great minds think alike. lol

ZEPHYRA's avatar

Love the question mark too!!??.??

LornaLove's avatar

The exclamation mark. I reckon we really underuse punctuations, especially my favourites!!!!!!What do you think???????

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

The apostrophe. So rarely used correctly, but a little mark can add so much clarity.

Coloma's avatar

@Jeruba Shush, speak not of colons, mine must be scoped soon. lol
