What does that mean when texting?
Meaning: You don't want to keep going back and forth all night. In texting, you don't have to end a sentence with any punctuation. It's totally acceptable to just let it dangle. So using a period gives a certain air of finality to a statement.
In texting, you don't have to end a sentence with any punctuation. It's totally acceptable to just let it dangle. In the first one, the meaning is clear: we've had our back-and-forth over text, but I have plans, and they do not include continuing this conversation – period.
- IF YOU USE Apple's iMessage, then you know about the ”typing awareness indicator” — the three dots that appear on your screen to show you when someone on the other end of your text is typing. Or so you thought. The bubble, in fact, doesn't always appear when someone is typing, or disappear when someone stops typing.
- The two dots are used by people that don't understand that there are supposed to be three dots. They think, by leaving out one of the dots, they're being smart because it doesn't mark the end of a sentence. In reality, the three dots mean it isn't the end of the sentence, and the four dots mean it does.
- As others pointed out, <3 resembles a heart, which often stands for 'love' and is commonly used among people who are romantically involved with each other (people who are in a relationship, for example). Two of those emoticons next to each other could mean "Much love", but that's just a guess.
Exclamation marks were originally called the “note of admiration.” They are still, to this day, used to express excitement. They are also used to express surprise, astonishment, or any other such strong emotion. Any exclamatory sentence can be properly followed by an exclamation mark, to add additional emphasis.
- A triangular road sign with exclamation mark - warning of danger ahead. With floor shadow. A sign warning people not to stop.
- That's the tire pressure monitoring system light. It indicates that there is a disparity in your tire pressure, which typically means that at least one of them is losing air.
- Exclamations. An exclamation (also called an interjection) is a word or phrase that expresses strong emotion, such as surprise, pleasure, or anger.
More than one exclamation mark doesn't have any meaning. An exclamation doesn't get more "exclamationy" by more marks. Of course, you could still use them, but the interpretation would be entirely up to the reader. Use of punctuation that doesn't have any grounds in grammar would be more like decoration.
- In mathematics, the symbol represents the factorial operation. The expression n! means "the product of the integers from 1 to n". For example, 4! (read four factorial) is 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 24. (0! is defined as 1, which is a neutral element in multiplication, not multiplied by anything.)
- In English grammar, an exclamatory sentence is a type of main clause that expresses strong feelings by making an exclamation. (Compare with sentences that make a statement, express a command, or ask a question.) Also called an exclamative or an exclamative clause.
- That symbol means you have low tire pressure. You should stop the car immediately and check the tire pressures. A yellow light means a loss of 10% or more in pressure. A red light shows a large or rapid loss of pressure.
