List of Dialogue Punctuation Examples


I like writing flash fiction. As such, I use a lot of character dialogue. I’ve gotten tired of trying to remember all the different punctuation rules for all the different sentence syntax, structure, and formatting options. So I decided to compile a complete list of conversation punctuation examples of same. Hopefully, every sentence structure and syntax punctuation example is covered. Now I can just keep this page open in a separate tab and refer to it as needed.
