well first i'll explain.i'm french 21 years old .have trouble with grammar .i need to re-education myself in english grammar .i just forgot alot. i just don't want to be treated like a moron.

ok.parts of speech i know them very well. my biggest problems area are punctuation & spelling .

so i'm working on capital letters now. i have a few question.

1.lets say i'm writing a dialoque passage .ex:"What?You're not serious are you?" (do i cap after a ? )i would say yes besause a ? ends the clause.(same goes for a ! i would asume?.)

2.still in dialoque.ex:"Quite!Now...Where is she?" these little things(...) are they always just in three? and what do they represent?hesitation and pause and cut off. plus do i cap after (...) i would say yes.?
Hi Huxley,

Welcome to the forum.

Yes, you are correct. Question marks (?) and exclamation marks (!) always show that the sentence (not clause) has ended, in the same way as a full stop. Therefore, you need to start the next word, which is the first word of a new sentence, with a capital letter.

If you are working on capitals then it might be a good idea to start using them correctly in all parts of your writing, to get into good habits, and not just in theoretical examples. So don't forget that all sentences must start with a capital letter and that 'I' is always capitalised.
What about the (...) What are the rules for the(...)

1 question :I saw some where about commas before conjunctions.(,)relating to subject verb agreement. about coordinating conjuntions. When do i use a comma before and,or,nor,for,but,so,yet.

ex: John turns to Maria and escorts her away from Tom.

but if i had this sentence.ex: John turns to Maria (,)and he escorts her away from Tom.

Besauce the two clauses are now independent clause with two different subject agreements.I'm I correct?
