We will study how to use exclamation marks (!) in this lesson. Let's look at the different ways that we use exclamation marks when we write in English.
1. End of a sentence to show strong emotion or feeling
- Stop it!
- I love it!
- You are the best!
- I hate it!
- Go away!
- Come here!
2. With direct speech
Punctuation is essential for writing in English. Punctuation helps you express your thoughts, feelings, and ideas in a way that is easy for the reader to understand.
- "I hate it!" she yelled.
- "Run!" the boy screamed to his friend.
- "We won!" they shouted after the game.
