A Dialogue between Master and SCHOLAR, con
cerning the Stops and Marks made use of in Reading and Writing 1. B. This also may be set by Way of Talk, a few Questions at a Time, which would be of great Service.
Master. How many Points, or Stops, are used in Reading and Writing?
Scholar. There are Six, viz, a Corima, 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 (!).
M. Pray tell me their Use in Reading ?
S. A Comma is the shortest of all Stops, and serves to divide Words of the same 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 soon as you rise, wash your Face and Hands clean, and comb out your Hair, and behave well, and God will bless you. Or thus: I am persuaded, that neither Death, nor Life, nor Angels, nor Principalities, nor Powers, nor Things present, nor Things to come, nor Height, nor Depth, nor any other Creature, shall be able to separate us from the Love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom. viii. v. 28, 29.
M. Pray what is the Use of a Colon?
S. A Colon (:) parts several 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 wise and prudent Boy, that minds his Book : For Learning, and good Education, are better than Riches.
M. What is the Use of a Semicolon ?
S. A Semicclon (;) serves also to part Senin tences; and is often used when the Sentences are contrary, or joint to a different End.
