Is there a capital letter after exclamation point?

If you use an exclamation point, then you've probably just ended a sentence. For instance, "I won the lottery!"

If you end a sentence, then the next sentence must begin with a capital letter (usually). There are some different uses of exclamation points as they relate to capital/lowercase letters. For example, if you're writing, "I won the lottery!" the next sentence would logically begin with a capital letter. So you might say, "I won the lottery! I'm going to buy a new car."

BUT, sometimes the rules can change. In Shakespeare, for example, one-word interjections followed by exclamation points are often followed by a lowercase word. For instance, one might say, "Lo! he is swooning with love."

Or, if you're quoting someone as saying, "Hey!" then your sentence might be something like this: "'Hey!' he said."

Usually, though, you can assume that your next word after an exclamation point should be capitalized.

Is senator capitalized at the end of a sentence?

No. "Senator" is not a proper noun unless followed by a name -- there are one hundred U. S. senators and thousands more in various state legislatures, after all -- and at the end of the sentence, nothing can follow.

Do you use a full stop after a question mark?

No, you do not. A question mark or exclamation point replaces a full stop.

*********************************

The answer above is correct.

An exclamation or question mark replaces the full stop and signals the end of the sentence!

*********************************

I respectfully point out that is does matter...the question mark and the exclamation mark come first, followed by the full stop. For example, the following words with punctuation are presented in this way..."What child is this?". Without the full stop you would be not aware that the sentence was concluded.

Should it be a full stop before or after brackets?

If the brackets surround an entire sentence then the full stop at the end of the sentence stays within the brackets. (This is the procedure you should follow.)

If the brackets only surround part of the sentence, the full stop goes outside. This is the procedure you should follow (under normal circumstances).

How can you tell which pads go on the inside and outside of a 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT?

I recently changed the front pads on my 2000 GT, and if yours are like mine, you will find that both the inside and outside pads are exactly the same. The only real difference is where you put the retainer clips on the pads. put the early warning tab on the in side so you can hear it.

Stretch Marks

Is it normal if you have a tattoo done with charcoal and a pin and a couple weeks later the area starts to look something like stretch marks?

This is a very risky way of doing a tattoo. It is obviously already too late for the "go to a professional" lecture.

Keep an eye on the skin around the tattoo; pain, inflammation, redness, swelling should be closely monitored, and if worsening occurs, you need to see a doctor- don't be ashamed, they've seen everything.

It sounds like you have begun to develop one of two things;

1) Keloid scarring. This scarring occurs most commonly when you have been tattooed too deeply. The result is a raised scar that is very hard to get rid of. To minimize scarring, rub unscented lotion containing vitamin E into the skin. Aloe helps soothe the skin, while vitamin E will reduce scarring. After the tattoo has healed, Bio Oil helps decrease discolouration associated with Keloids, but will not reduce the raised feeling of them much.

2) BLOOD POISONING- these lines could signify blood poisoning, from unclean materials and processes. See a doctor immediately- you could have a potentially fatal infection.

What is an ambiguous question?

There is a difference between UNCLEAR and AMBIGUOUS. It is important to understand this distinction to understand this question. Something that is UNCLEAR is difficult to understand. Something that is AMBIGUOUS has at least two possible interpretations. An ambiguous statement is one that has more than one possible interpretation. Here's a basic example. "Did you see the girl with the telescope?" This question has two clear possible interpretations. This ambiguity arises from the prepositional phrase "with the telescope". This phrase may modify the subject, you, or the object, the girl. The two possible interpretations are as follows- "Did you see the girl who is holding the telescope?" "Did you see the girl by using the telescope?"

Where can you find an English-Chinese translator that doesn't give question marks as an answer?

== == I would suggest not to use software for Chinese translation. Chinese language is one of the most complex languages. Software cannot do the work well; many phrases could be mistranslated. Using a professional linguist is your best approach.

Do quotation marks go before or after the period or question mark?

There is a difference between US and British/Canadian punctuation styles.

In the US

Trailing periods and commas always appear inside the quotation marks

ex. "Let's go to the zoo."

ex. The spelling of the word is "ampersand." - He said, "Go now," and turned away.

But question marks follow the same logic logic as below.

In the UK and Canada

The punctuation follows the logical extension of the quote.

The period or comma goes outside the quotation mark, except where the period is part of a quote.

ex. He said "The day is long." - The movie was called "Benji".

In either version of English

If you are quoting a question then the ? will go within the quotation marks.

ex. Sally asked, "Where are you going?"

If you're asking a question about a quote, then the ? will go after the quotation marks.

ex. Did Sally say, "We are going to the zoo"?

Note: There is never any double punctuation used.
