I thought sure we would have an English major visit the board and provide the list.

Well, for us non-English majors here they are in bold letters ------

Period
Comma
Colon
Semicolon
Dash
Hyphen
Apostrophe
Question Mark
Exclamation Point
Quotation Marks
Brackets
Parenthesis
Braces
Ellipses

No, I couldn't name all of them either. I found this in a book of trivia and knew that all of you were just chomping at the bits for this info.
