    Re: Punctuations

    Take a look at the Online Writing Lab at Purdue. (Just google OWL Purdue punctuation) The OWL is one of my favorite resources.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Correct spacing is also a part of correct punctuation. Also, though unrelated to punctuation, note that 'advice' is uncountable, so 'advices' is not standard.


    PS: About the title, I believe 'punctuations' is also non-standard. Punctuation
