The Love Point

Today is Valentine’s Day, and whilst you contemplate whether to pay full-price for candy today or wait until it’s discounted, why not also think about some obscure punctuation marks?

The one that is particularly relevant today is the Love Point, which looks a little like two question marks facing each other. Proposed in 1966 by French author (of course) Herve Bazin, it’s meant to be used after words of affection.

If you’re feeling a little less romantic today, check out the other nine punctuation marks at Flavorwire. And then maybe take up French lessons in Philadelphia – it is the language of love after all!
