Three rules that I found interesting:

  • Rule with hyphens, some established compound adjectives are always hyphenated. Example: the design is state-of-the-art.
  • Semicolon rule: The most common use of the semicolon is to join two independent clauses without using a conjunction like and, “Also, it is generally right not to use a capital letter after a semicolon.
  • Serial comma in a list: Correct example “Pets R Us has lizards and frogs, dogs and cats, and parakeets and macaws”, you can also shorten it to become, “Pets R Us has lizards, dogs, and birds.”

I didn’t use most of these concepts in my paper so I don’t have any examples to give. The only rule I partially used was the serial comma rule. I added this comma format when implementing my thesis. My thesis included three arguments that used commas. This represented my ideas successfully, and efficiently.
