@joshmillard what about the one that looks like hemidemisemicolon on the bottom but like demisemicolon on top
@cosine a pseudohemidemisemicolon? It was agreed that they would no longer be recognized or discussed, as a condition of the 1978 Comma Accord.
a full-stop break between e.g. a descriptor and list of items
"there were only three options left: win, lose, or draw"
a partial stop between two related but independent thoughts
"they couldn't tell it was a cat; he'd have to start his sketch over"
demisemicolon [2 commas facing away from each other]
a brief stumble in an otherwise continous single thought
"he'd have to, ̒fuckin’ pull out all the stops on this one”
hemidemisemicolon [same as above but the commas are 2-sided]
an imperceptible dissociative fugue littered throughout a thought
"fuck, ̒̓wait, ̒̓was that, ̒̓what was a cat, ̒̓was he d, ̒̓rawing a h, ̒̓o, ̒̓r, ̒̓s, ̒̓e”
@joshmillard another good grammatical tip:
"Jimmy bought some items from the shop: apples; bananas; and pears."
