A Linguistic Study of American Punctuation
"A Linguistic Study of American Punctuation" is the first full-length treatment of American punctuation that is descriptive rather than prescriptive. The book has two purposes: to detail the relationship between punctuation and linguistic structure (syntax, prosody, semantics, and pragmatics) and to describe how this relationship affected the practice of punctuation in a collection of written texts taken from the Brown University Corpus of American English.
