What’s the Big Deal About Punctuation?

Punctuation is not really that important, right? WRONG! It's very important, and a tiny, misplaced comma or question mark can cost millions of dollars or break someone's heart.

A professor wrote the following sentence on the board and asked his class to punctuate it:

Woman without her man is nothing.

Half of the class punctuated the sentence in the following way:

Woman: without her, man is nothing.

The other half of the class responded with the following:

Woman, without her man, is nothing.

It's clear, from this example, that punctuation is very important indeed!
