The exclamation mark is used to express exasperation,astonishment or surprise or to emphasise a comment or short, sharp phrase.

Exclamation mark 3

For example:

  • Help! Help!
  • That’s unbelievable!
  • Get out!
  • Look out!

You can also use it to mark a phrase as humourous, ironic or sarcastic.

  • 1. What a lovely day! (when it obviously is not a lovely day)
  • 2. That was clever! (when someone has done something stupid)

Some general remarks:

  • Don’t overuse the exclamation mark
  • Don’t include a series of exclamation marks. E.g., I’ll never get it right!!!!
