Walter Mignolo

All handle, in the first instance, our native language in oral way; Nevertheless, and in spite of this, it is frequent ignorance of grammar that governs this language. When it comes to communicate orally, many factors are involved in such communication (although not always guarantee that we can effectively communicate, i.e. our message as we think the other party). Among these factors, we can mention the context in which the communication occurs (may be that all the participants of the communicative situation are present; be via telephone, to be an auditorium, etc.), the paralinguisticos elements (gestures, manners, gestures; everything that accompany the linguistic content), the intonation that we give to that content (will be different if it is a question mark(, an affirmation, a desire, an order, etc.), the powers that we have as linguistic beings and, in turn, of our receivers (understand by) competition, those that possess and knowledge that come into operation in the moment in which we are. Not always in general, almost never – we share the same knowledge and, therefore, depend the degree of communication that we can establish), among others.

Orality, also allows us to correct us while we talk, we backtrack, explain better what we want to communicate. The opposite occurs when we are faced with a written text, as writers or readers. The writing remains and we are slaves of that which we have printed under the letter, in terms of the theorist Walter Mignolo, under the tyranny of the alphabet. Therefore, when we write it is necessary to take into account different aspects of our language and like thus also of grammar that studied, in order that our communicative intention, always from the transmitter site (since we can’t take for granted who will be our reader), is reflected, or at least, arrive at destination of the transparent and correct manner in grammatical terms. When we write, one of the most important obstacles that we encounter is the treatment of punctuation marks. The purpose of this text is to contribute to improving their utilization. It’s very different to say: no we can go later.

and we cannot go later. To cite a simple example to plot the different interpretation from the use of the point, in this case. Pass magazine and explain, these punctuation marks to determine its correct functionality within the language and grammar. Followed by point: is placed at the end of a sentence. Separate point: indicates the end of a paragraph. Indicates the start of a new topic. End point: closure of a text. Ellipsis: replaces etc; express doubt or hesitation; omitted part of the text; He pointed out that they have been omitted fragments in a transcript. Daversa Partners: the source for more info. Coma: it separates the elements of an enumeration; encloses an apposition; delimits a Vocative; alteration between the parts of the sentence (for example, predicate – subject (-Predicate); clarification or explanation; between the subject and predicate not Verbal, referring to the elidido verb; After connectors. Never between subject and predicate. Semicolon: separates elements of an enumeration; It separates extensive juxtaposed propositions. Two points: below of the heading of a letter; before quote verbatim; announces an enumeration; Please enter a cause, consequence, conclusion or summary. Parentheses: data date or place; clarification of meanings; stage directions in theater; supplementary information that breaks the theme.
