6 Hours Ago Full Stop Punctuation Meme Explained
When people look at full-stop punctuation, they see a sign that says "done." It seems like an obvious point, but I see people often make mistakes when using these marks in their writing. For example, I read an article recently where the author makes it seem as though he is describing the full stop as being optional. He says: "I prefer to write full stops as italics or nothing. When I do so, I feel that my text is less dense, and I don't have to worry about my readers coming up with the word "done" to describe what I'm saying."
Indeed, that makes sense, but there are two problems with his logic here. One, in saying that full-stop punctuation is optional, he is making the point that it should be used when appropriate, and that you shouldn't overuse it just to save time and lessen the work. But two, he is wrong in that he is comparing the choice to the number of hours in which you should write an essay or a piece of writing. If you want to write an essay or a good, thorough essay, you should probably use all caps, because there is a huge difference between writing a paragraph of three hundred or four hundred words and writing a paragraph of one thousand words or more.
The grammar bug that he is addressing is actually related to the number of words in a written piece, but it applies more to the choice of how to use words within a written piece. That's where he goes off the deep end. If you want to shorten your piece, but not make it sound boring, don't use all caps. You might think that this sounds backwards, but it isn't. Many people think that using all caps will give the piece a snazzy appearance and makes it sound more like a school report than an essay.
This is simply not true, because as I've said, there is no way to make a sentence that contains no fillers or no matter fillers sound less than five hundred words, if not less. If you want to shorten it, you can. It does matter what kind of sentence it ends up being. If you shorten it by using all caps, but you do so with complete sentences that convey a certain level of clarity and with perfect grammar, you're still communicating the meaning of your piece while utilizing the full-stop punctuation rule.
In fact, you can do this in YouTube and other video sharing sites all over the internet. I posted the YouTube video two days ago and have so far had a lot of views and comments. One guy even suggested that I should put the transcript of that YouTube video instead of putting the full-stop punctuation on top of my YouTube video, and that would be a clever idea. It might not be that popular, but I'm certainly keeping my ears open for any ideas anyone has to make my videos seem more interesting.
This is a good point, but you need to remember that YouTube is not a place where you are supposed to educate or explain something to people. They are there to look at things and be entertained. When you try to explain something through the use of full stops, it might alienate them and they will get bored very quickly. You have to learn how to communicate in a way that they can understand. This is not as difficult as it sounds, but if you really want to learn this art, then you need to spend a few hours every day studying how to use full stops in sentences without coming off as a whiny baby.
If you are going to use full stops in your sentences, then make sure you remove them at the end of words and only use them again on the first or second word of each sentence. For example, if I were writing a sentence like the following, "The man who lived in the house across the street used full stops all throughout his sentence." You would write this sentence without the use of capital letters, just like I am doing above. However, if I were to write the sentence like this, "The man who lived in the house across the street used full stops all throughout his sentence" I would then add the capital letters, "filled with thoughts that are full of thoughts".
Now, if I were to come back to this and try to teach you how to use full-stop punctuation, I thought I would start with "I was in the house across the street using full stops all throughout my sentence." This would be better for me because I would not have to repeat myself, which could cause problems. Instead, I can just say, "The man who lived in the house across the street used full stop all through his sentence." This is much easier for me and I don't have to worry about the person reading my write up not getting what I wrote down correctly. If you are writing a sentence and need to include the use of full-stop punctuation, make sure you remove it at the end of each word or sentence.
