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
