Grammar Help : How to properly punctuate a sentence

Michael Leddy of Lifehack.org (not to be confused with LifeHacker.com, a similar and more popular website run by Gina Trapani) guides you through five rules to remember, to properly punctuate a sentence. Not surprisingly, he teaches college English.

He uses well-placed commas, semicolons, and colons, to dramatically improve the readability of sentences. Not only does it help the reader move through the sentence faster, it makes it that much easier to understand what exactly the writer intends to convey.

A related article by Michael himself, on 'How to Unstuff a sentence', is worth a read.
