Do you know how to replace an exclamation mark in a sentence?

By 13 December 2017Language Tips

Avoid exclamation marks in your writing

Avoid exclamation marks in your writing as they are a sign of informality.

Instead, use adjectives to show the level of emotion felt by the reader.

In the example above, we can use an adjective for extreme pain instead of the exclamation mark:

He reported his pain was excruciating.

Here is another example:

 Miss Linney was advised she must change her diet!

Miss Linney was advised it was essential she change her diet.
