Communication Tip #33

n honor of National Punctuation Day (September 24th), here are two uses for brackets:

  • to change a word in a quote for clarification purposes:  “[Punctuation marks] tell the reader how to hum the tune.”(1)
  • as parentheses within parentheses: The life-changing punctuation document (covered with dust in the [dilapidated] historical museum) is worth scrutinizing.

Happy punctuating!  ?{;<(./:),!
