Still think none of this matters much? Well, I recently read a reference to the hyphenless light sabre duel between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. It's a while since I saw The Empire Strikes Back, but I seem to remember that that duel was pretty heavy.

If decades have passed since you sat through a grammar class—or if you were a little fuzzy on the rules in the first place—this handy punctuation primer will clear out the cobwebs in no time! Tips for capitalization (why do we drive south to the American South?), when to use a semicolon vs. a colon, why you shouldn't begin a sentence with a dash or parentheses, the reasons we use apostrophes for possessives but not plurals…these grammatical tips and more will save you from "misadventures in punctuation!"
