One year ago today was National Punctuation Day. Those pesky, perverse, and pernicious pieces of punctuation are a big part of what keeps us in business. Both the spellchecker (apostrophes, anyone?) and the grammar checker (how many spaces come after a period?) are there in part to help you punctuate properly. So naturally we here in the Natural Language group have been looking forward to this event for weeks. And now we find that this year it’s been moved to September 24th. Oh, well: I guess that just gives us 32 more shopping days.
