Grammar rules in UK and USA

Postby merrimj1122 » Mon Apr 21, 2014 2:53 pm

Hello! I have a quick question that I never realized before: the commas, quotes, and exclamation point positioning rules are different in both countries. How seriously do the judges take punctuation? Do they consider both countries rules? Thanks! :thankssign

The judges are aware of differences in UK and USA usage, punctuation, and spelling. Those have no effect on the judging whatsoever.

Great question--thanks for asking!
