Here’s a lil’ bit of what i learnt in school today. This subject is known as MGW1100 : Managerial Communication. Basically, the example below would show how punctuation can change the meaning of a sentence entirely.
- An English professor wrote the words, “Woman without her man is nothing” on the blackboard and directed his students to punctuate it correctly.
I found this amusing because this totally showed gender differences. And this is how his students anwered,
Men : Woman, without her man, is nothing.
Women : Woman! Without her, man is nothing.
Now, wouldn’t you be amused too? :D
