The term punctuation marks is understood in two ways:
- It is often seen as synonymous with punctuation marks . This usage is found in Kürschner as well as in the Duden . It seems to be the more common version. In this case, the punctuation marks that only refer to a single word are also included.
- Occasionally, however, punctuation marks are systematically distinguished from word marks . Sub-word characters then those falls that do not relate serve to structure a sentence, but only single words: apostrophe , hyphen , hyphen and hyphen or point of abbreviations ( "Dr."). In this case, punctuation marks are to be understood as a generic term for word and punctuation marks. This distinction can be found in the linguistic reference work Metzler Lexikon Sprache von Glück under the keyword “ punctuation ”.
