    No Card is Available or No Card Available

    Hi :) I've been meeting a lot of statements with "No card is available" and "no card available". Since then, I've been wondering which one is the right one or maybe both of them are right, if it is what makes them different? Do they have different function or placement?



    Thank you so much. xx

    Thank you so much. xx Unnecessary. Just click Thank when you get a useful answer.
    I've never met either of those statements. In what context do you see them? What words are the dots replacing?

    Re: No Card is Available or No Card Available

    On signs, in newspaper headlines, on text messages from computers brevity is often an important consideration.

    We don't connect sentences with strings of dots either. We use one full stop at the end of a sentence. Three dots in a row is an ellipsis and has a specific use.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
