You've been learning punctuation for years and probably use it, or at least see examples of it, every day.Did you know that many centuries ago, texts were written without any punctuation? When writing materials were scarce and therefore very precious, words were often written even without any spaces between them. Can you imagine how hard it would be to read such writing? itwouldlookalittlebitlikethis.
After some time, people began using a mark a little bit like a full stop, placing it between each word (although it was placed not on the line, but a little higher). So.that.looked.something.like.this. Writing continued developing, with people adding more and more complex ways of punctuating, always with the purpose of making meaning clear.
