Give the following sentence punctuation (anything other than numbers and letters) to make it mean two different things:

A woman without her man is nothing

I got this from a packet we did in school.

Here's mine:
put spaces in it to make it mean two different things.

Here :-

A woman, without her man, is nothing.

I couldn't guess what the other would be.

And for this:-

Down the mall,

Down them all.

When it comes to punctuation quizzes, I like:
Quote:
john where jane had had had had had had had had had had had the teachers approval


Another interesting sentence is:
Quote:
Show this bold Prussian that praises slaughter, slaughter brings rout.
If you don't see what's neat about that one right away, read it again, but dropping the first letter of each word.

That is exactly what I was thinking but then I started thinking that maybe "A woman." is a fractured sentence. I don't know, what do you think about this? I don't see any other possibilities though.

A woman - without her, man is nothing.

Sounds like feminist propaganda to me!

Maybe... A woman: without her, man is nothing.

A woman; without her, man is nothing.

Maybe? I don't know for sure... but the double dash thing just makes me feel dirty. It just seems so inadequate as true punctuation <.<

Nice one traveller. I like the second one. I dont' quite get the first one though. But the answer to it is Show this bold Prussian that praises slaughter, slaughter brings rout.

I really don't get the game though.

One I remember from childhood - paraphrased, since it was in Danish - simpler than the had had... one - not much need to punctuate Smile

"The customer thinks our sign should have more space between bed and and and and and breakfast."

Incidentally, Traveller's first sentence is about sentence construction:

"John, where Jane had had "had", had had "had had" - "had had" had had the teacher's approval."

The had one just makes my brain hurt.

GO DIS NOWHERE. How do you dis nowhere? hehe...
