New Punctuation ESL app is a handy guide
Dots and Squiggles is a new iPhone app that offers a handy guide to English punctuation. The app covers all of the major punctuation marks: the obvious ones such as commas, question marks, and periods . . . but also the less common ellipses, brackets, and [square brackets]. Sentence examples are included to show you the punctuation in action. That is particularly helpful for those of us who sometimes can't remember the order of punctuation (do periods go inside or outside of brackets?!). The graphics are clear and simple, making the app easy to navigate. At $1.99, this is a very handy and worthwhile tool to store in any iPhone -- for native English speakers and for ESL students.
