Punctuation

Kryptonian punctuation is fairly sparse owing, in large part, to the grammatic particles in the language that already serve to separate content.

Description: The sentence marker—the most common punctuation in Kryptonian. It's akin to the period in the Roman writing system, but marks the beginning of a sentence rather than the end. (There is no punctuation marking the end of a sentence.)

Description: The conjoined sentence marker. This precedes any sentence joined to another with a conjunction. Again, this mark precedes the sentence.

Description: Proper name markers. All proper names are surrounded by these markers which also replaces any spaces between names. Examples: Kal-El = ,kal,el,, Jor-El = ,jö,el,, Dru-Zod = ,jru,zad,. This character, with spaces on either side, also serves to separate an addressee at the beginning of a sentence.

Description: Quotation marks. Used for encapsulating direct quotations. Not used for encapsulating set-apart words or phrases as in English (e.g. How do you spell "definitely"?).

Description: The underline is used for emphasis, for set-apart words and phrases (see the example listed for quotations), and in dictionary listings to indicate the "shifting" vowel in gendered nouns. The font uses '~' for an independent underline, but the combining characters are '{' and '}'.
