While on the topic of advising Faith, to keep her beliefs, and/or her child... "Keep the baby faith. vs. Keep the Baby, Faith. " (my last blog) I found my thoughts wandering over to other punctuation and gramamar offspring.
Lately I have found myself in a communication conundrum. Is it still important to maintain professional conduct, in the written world? When composing a letter, do you use Box or indented style, Is it Dear Sir, or Madame, still, or just a simple salutation like "Hey .... "
Punctuation. Grammatically correct, nouns, verbs, adjectives and commas. Has written communication downgraded to simple keystrokes - and if it has - are we still as understood, as when a simple comma could change the context and meaning of an entire sentence?
Try adding a comma to this sentence:
WOMAN WITHOUT HER MAN WOULD BE NOTHING.
WOMAN, WITHOUT HER MAN, WOULD BE NOTHING.
WOMAN, WITHOUT HER, MAN WOULD BE NOTHING.
Of course a personal favourite is "Let's eat Mommy." vs. Let's eat, Mommy"
Of course it's important, when and where you take a breathe.
