Isn’t that a great word?
I finally got caught up on all my back episodes of Grammar Girl, and by far my favorite tid bit that I picked up was from an episode on punctuation that introduced me to the Interrobang.
The interrobang apparently is used for punctuating questions that are asked in a “surprised manner”. Since technically, using two punctuation marks isn’t good grammar, the interrobang is a combination of an exclamation point and a question mark.
Isn’t is cool‽
But I have to admit, I mostly just love the name. I think the next pet I get, I’ll be very tempted to name it ‘Interrobang’.
So is anyone with me? Can we revive the poor forgotten interrobang?
