Take time to have a bit of a look at the word games in the Chook's post, and then she how you go with these two punctuation challenges. My Father-in-Law was an English teacher and he loved using these with his students. I'm sure glad he didn't set my exams!!
Okay. Are you ready?
First, a conversation with a sign writer that goes like this:
There is not enough space between Jones and and and and and Son. (5 ands.)That one too easy for you? Have a go at this one then.
Jemimah whereas Max had had had had had had had had had had had the better mark then Jemimah would have won. (11 hads.)Both sentences can be punctuated to read as correct English. If you think you've worked them out then leave me a correctly punctuated sentence (or two) in the comments. If nobody takes up the challenge I'll let you know my Father-in-Law's answers next week.
Oh yes, as the Book Chook says, be sure to try them on your kids as well.
