What is that little glyph anyway??

Matticus Finch said...

The INTERROBANG, a largely forgotten wonder of the 60's. The poor little thing was almost named the exclamaquest.

"The INTERROBANG can convey in print an attitude, curiosity, and wonder."

"A sentence ending with an INTERROBANG asks a question in an excited manner, expresses excitement or disbelief in the form of a question, or asks a rhetorical question."

"Many writers, especially in informal writing, have used multiple punctuation marks to end a sentence expressing surprise and question."

"Like multiple exclamation marks and multiple question marks, such strings count as poor style in formal writing."!!!
