** Interestingly, reading the Greek and Latin examples above [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scriptio_continua was more like reading sheet music than a book]]. The reader would have already practised reading the text aloud and would use the scroll as a cue sheet�the reading itself was akin to a recital.

* The fiction of Portuguese novelist José Saramago features only periods and commas, and nothing more. Furthermore, there's no indication of dialogue or who's talking what, except that each piece of dialogue starts with capital letters, just as if it was written normally. Finally, his paragraphs extend over pages. Sweden awarded him the UsefulNotes/NobelPrizeInLiterature.

* Every sentence in the original Japanese ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' games ends in either an exclamation point, question mark, or ellipses. One with a period was finally added for ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''; it describes what happens when a Pokémon uses the move "Splash" (nothing).

** Also with Classical Chinese, where punctuation is never used. This has led to a very fun type of exam question where the student is presented with a block of text and has to add the punctuation (made easier by the fact that Classical Chinese is written in a highly rhythmic and formalized style, finding the places to pause tend to come naturally after one reads the passages a few dozen times).

* A rather unusual characteristic of comic books from UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}} and forward, particularly those from {{DC|Comics}} (although [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2010/01/28/comic-book-legends-revealed-245/ Marvel got in its share in 1971]]), is a complete lack of any punctuation other than exclamation points and question marks. In the beginning it was because the low-quality paper stock would render any small marks, like periods or commas, invisible or illegible. As it stands, the omission of periods and the use of all caps is a stylistic choice, not practiced by all letterers. The dialog is instead structured by comic's own unique punctuation mark, the speech balloon, which provides flow and rhythm via spacial placement, as well as other tone information.

* Given that periods are not required in written Japanese, a lot of scanlations are prone to this. Or else! They will end every sentence the same way! With an exclamation mark! Even when it makes no sense! And when it reduces the impact of sentences that had an exclamation mark in Japanese!
