Grammar! Punctuation! Joy!

Science Fiction author Elizabeth Moon is doing a short series, unknown how many parts, on punctuation. How and when to use it, how to use it properly, and how not to use it.

It's easy to read, accessable, and not stupid and pedantic and ranty like eats, shoots, and leaves.

Also, she talks about stylistic methods. it's pretty awesome.

Commas are here.

Semi-Colons are here.

Apostrophes are here.

Hopefully she'll cover all of them, although dash and ellipsis seem to have been covered in the comments of the Semi-Colon essay.
