This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1892 edition. Excerpt: ...that the interrogation may be equivalent to a comma or a semicolon. It is important that the writer should know to what the interrogation is equivalent, as upon this depends whether the next word shall begin with a capital. The way to determine this is to change the questions into affirmative form. If, when this has been done, the questions are found to have been resolved into independent statements, the interrogation is equivalent to a period; but if the expressions appear as a series of clauses or expressions requiring the comma or semicolon for their punctuation, the interrogation will be found to have been equivalent to one or the other of those marks, and the next word will not begin with a capital. Illustration: (1) Shall a man gain the favor of heaven by impiety? by falsehood? by murder? by theft? Affirmatively: A man can not obtain the favor of heaven by impiety, by falsehood, by murder, by. theft. Equivalent to commas. (2.) Who will heed his absurd claim? who will be influenced by his apparent misrepresentations? Affirmatively: No one will heed his absurd claim; no one will be influenced by his apparent misrepresentations. Equivalent to the semicolon. EXAMPLES FOR PRACTICE. 1. When does he expect to return Are you prepared for the suit 2. Will you kindly inform me as to where I can obtain them 3. His question "How are we to prove it was timely" 4. "Well what are you going to do about it" was his impertinent question 5. Is she fond of music of art of literature 6.
