PROSODY treats of punctuation, utterance, figures, and versification.
Punctuation is the art of dividing composition, by points, or stops, for the purpose of showing more clearly the sense and relation of the words, and of noting the different pauses and inflections required in reading.
The following are the principal points, or marks; the Comma (,), the Semicolon (;], the Colon [:], the Period [.], the Dash [-], the Eroteme, or Note of Interrogation [?], the Ecphoneme, or Note of Exclamation [!], and the Curves, or Marks of Parenthesis [()].
OBS.—The pauses that are made in the natural flow of speech, have, in reality, no definite and invariable .proportions. Children are often told to pause at a comma while they might count one ; at a semicolon, one, two; at å colon, one, two, three; at å period, one, two, three, four: This may be of some use, as teaching them to observe their stops that they may catch the sense; but the standard itself is variable, and so are the times which good sense gives to the points. As a final stop, the period is immeasurable. The following general direction is as good as any that can be given.
The Comma denotes the shortest pause; the Semicolon, a pause double that of the comma; the Colon, a pause double that of the semicolon; and the Period, or Full Stop, a pause double that of the colon. The pauses required by the other marks, vary according to the structure of the sentence, and their place in it. They may be equal to any of the foregoing.
SECTION 1.-OF THE COMMA. The Comma is used to separate those parts of a sen. tence, which are so nearly connected in sense, as to be only one degree removed from that close connexion which admits no point,
