  Full stops
You need a capital letter to start each sentence and a full stop to end it.
  • A question must end with a question mark instead of a full stop.
  • Sometimes exclamation marks are better than full stops.
Commas
Use commas to break up long sentences, to make them easier to understand.
  • Use commas between items in a list.
  • Where more than one thing happens:
  • Where extra information is given
