Behold: The Colon

leave a comment »

If you are a punctuation nerd like me, you’ll enjoy this post about the colon’s renaissance.  You might learn some something, like the four kinds of colons –

1. The lister: “The meal requires three ingredients: milk, eggs, and flour.”

2. The talker: “He shouted at the sky: ‘I’m retired!’”

3. The natural extension: “She saw him for what he was: a prodigy.”

4. The juxtaposer: “His face was red: the guests were staring.”
