A Dialogue between MASTER and SCHOLAR, concerning the Stops and Marks made use of in Reading and Writing.

N. B. This alfo may be fet by Way of Tafk, a few Questions at a Time, which would be of great Service.

Mafter. How many Points, or Stops, are used in Reading and Writing?

Scholar. There are Six, viz. a Comma, a Colon, a Semicolon, a Period, or full Stop, a Note of Interrogation, and a Note of Admiration.


M. Please to tell me how they are made?

S. A Comma is mark'd or made thus (,) a Colon thus (:) a Semicolon chus (;) a Period, or full Stop, thus (,) a Note of Interrogation thus (?) and a Note of Admiration thus (!).

[ocr errors]

M. Pray tell me their Ufe in Reading?

S. A Comma is the fhorteft of all Stops, and ferves to divide Words of the fame Kind, or short Sentences, till you come to the full Sense, or End of the Sentence.

M. Pray give me an Example?

S. Be a good Boy, and mind your Book, fay your Prayers, Night and Morning, and as foon as you rife, wash your Face and Hands clean, and comb out your Hair, and behave well, and God will blefs you. Or thus: I am perfuaded, that neither Death, nor Life, nor Angels, nor Principalities, nor Powers, nor Things prefent, nor Things to come, nor Height, nor Depth, nor any other Creature, fhall be able to feparate us from the Love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom. viii. v. 28, 29.

M. Pray what is the Ufe of a Colon?

S. A Colon (:) parts feveral Sentences, every one of which has a full Meaning of its own; tho at the fame Time, it leaves us in Expectation of Something that is to follow.

M. Pray give me an Example?

S. He is a wife and prudent Boy, that minds his Book: For Learning, and good Education, are better than Riches.

M. What is the Ufe of a Semicolon?

S. A Semicolon (;) ferves alfo to part Sen tences; and is often used when the Sentences are contrary, or point to a different End..
