Use an exclamation point [ ! ] at the end of an emphatic declaration,
“No!” he yelled. “Do it now!”
An exclamation mark may be used to close questions that are meant to convey extreme emotion, as in
What on earth are you doing! Stop!
An exclamation mark can be inserted within parentheses to emphasize a word within a sentence.
We have some really(!) low-priced rugs on sale this week.
An exclamation mark will often accompany mimetically produced sounds, as in
“All night long, the dogs woof! in my neighbor’s yard” and
“The bear went Grr!, and I went left.”
If an exclamation mark is part of an italicized or underlined title, make sure that the exclamation mark is also italicized or underlined:
My favorite book is Oh, the Places You’ll Go!
(Do not add a period after such a sentence that ends with the title’s exclamation mark. The exclamation mark will also suffice to end the sentence.) If the exclamation mark is not part of a sentence-ending title, don’t italicize the exclamation mark:
I’ve asked you not to sing la Marseillaise!
In academic prose, an exclamation point is used rarely, if at all, and in newspaper writing the exclamation point is virtually nonexistent.
Use a period at the end of a command.
- Hand in the poster essays no later than noon on Friday.
- In case of tremors, leave the building immediately.
Use a period at the end of an indirect question.
- The teacher asked why Maria had left out the easy exercises.
- My father used to wonder why Egbert’s ears were so big.
Use a period with abbreviations:
- Dr. Espinoza arrived from Washington, D.C., at 6 p.m.
Notice that when the period ending the abbreviation comes at the end of a sentence, it will also suffice to end the sentence. On the other hand, when an abbreviation ends a question or exclamation, it is appropriate to add a question mark or exclamation mark after the abbreviation-ending period:
- Did you enjoy living in Washington, D.C.?
Occasionally, a statement will end with a question. When that happens, it is appropriate to end the sentence with a question mark.
- We can get to Boston quicker, can’t we, if we take the interstate?
- His question was, can we end this statement with a question mark?
- She ended her remarks with a resounding why not?
