    Punctuation for enumeration

    Hiya,

    I'm looking or a rule concerning the enumeration. In which case do I have to do a full stopp?

    My opinion is that there is a fullstopp needed, if the sentence is complete.

    Like:
    - The cow ran after the man.
    - The support was very friendy.

    No full stopp needed if it's no sentence.

    Like:
    - Health theory
    - Education for everybody

    Thanks for your help!

    Use conventional punctuation for listed items that complete a sentence, omit punctuation after listed items if the list does not complete a sentence.
