It’s time we address the elephant in the room.
English punctuation is incomplete and I am out to rectify that.
As a writer, I have the urge to end sentences with “!?” all the time. Some days, it’s every other sentence.
It has become clear to me – from finishing the Internet – there is distinct meaning in the expression of these sentences. While grammar experts might say the expression is best represented by a question mark, I am simply not convinced this is the best option. Picard sentences (that’s right I named them) not only express exclamation but simultaneously insist there is a logical, common sense, and mostly rhetorical answer. We’re not looking for information. We’re want to express frustration with stupidity.
With this said, I present to you – The Picard Mark!
I’ve made is so. It’s long overdue.
