Not illustrated. 1906 edition. Excerpt: ...not to praise him. 86. A sentence beginning with and, or, for, but, or a similar connective is in reality a part of the preceding sentence; yet such sentences are often separated by periods from what precedes. In this way, long and complex constructions may be avoided, with a gain in force and in ease of comprehension. The period is to be preferred to the exclamation point at the end of an exclamatory statement or command, unless the emotion to be expressed is exceptionally strong. RULE XXIX. 87. Abbreviations.--A period should be used after every abbreviated word, but not after contracted words when the missing elements are replaced by a dash or an apostrophe. MSS., p., pp.. Dr., Ph. P., LP. P., and Co. are abbreviations. Rec'd, can't, pay, t, f--n S--th, and Rev'd are contractions. 88. Arabic figures when used to number paragraphs, examples, articles, etc., and letters of the alphabet when used for the same purpose, take a period after them. When, as part of a sentence structure, they become ordinal or are enclosed in marks of parenthesis a period is not required; as, (1), (a), 1st, 2d, 4th. Roman numbers are by most authorities written with a period following; as, IV., XVIII. When used in paging, Roman and Arabic numbers do not have the period after them. There is good authority for omitting the period in all cases after Roman numerals. 89. The symbols for chemical elements are written without periods; also, the letters used in geometry and other sciences to represent quantity of any kind, and certain other much used mathematical abbreviations.
