Welcome to the best punctuaton exercise ever made! This is incredible. In no time at all you can learn all the rules that you need including rules you never knew you would need until just now. The first rules is to not confuse your reader. That should be easy, perhaps too easy, to remember. Second, remember the seven short ones and, or, for, nor, so, but and yet. When connecting two sentences, place a comma with one of the seven short ones, also called coordinating conjunctions if you use any other word or no word at all use a semi-colon before it and a comma after it. Nothing could be so simple, so pure, so--O! I just have to say it--exciting!
