Exclamation Point

The exclamation point is used to show strong emotion. It’s important that writers only use the exclamation point sparingly because if it’s used too much, it loses its effect. So, make sure it is only used when it is actually needed.

So, take a look at this sentence.

Look at that sunrise

So, basically, here, it depends on how the writer wants to convey this sentence. Or, say this is a quotation, and depend on how the speaker said it.

So, if the speaker said:

Look at that sunrise.”

We would just put a period at the end. But, if the speaker said:

Look at that sunrise!”

Then we would put an exclamation point or an exclamation mark as it’s often called.
