A History of English Punctuation for English Language Day - Lecture

Everyone has a view on punctuation. People get angry with apostrophes, concerned about commas and colons, excited about exclamation marks and suspicious of the slash...

Professor Christopher Mulvey gives this year's English Language Day lecture - 'A History of English Punctuation - From Saint Jerome to Mary Norris'

Where does punctuation come from? What's happening to it today? Why do people care so much about it?

Chris will share stories of the Great Punctuators and encourage us to look with fresh eyes at this fascinating topic.
