The end-of-sentence punctuation symbols may also appear within a sentence.

  • Full stops are used in abbreviations.
    They are also used to express time of day.
  • Exclamation marks and question marks might appear within a bracketed comment within a sentence.
    Notice that they appear at the end of the bracketed comment, within the bracket. They form mini-sentences except they are not given the initial capital letter.

We look at brackets in a later lesson.
