Punctuation in Spanish.
Be glad a period is a period is a period…period! Sentences in Spanish can end in periods, just as they do in English. Question marks and exclamation marks are used at the end of sentences as well. Unlike English, however, they are inverted (or written upside down) and used at the beginning of sentences, too. An exclamation in Spanish would be written ¡No es posible! (It's not possible!), and a question would be written ¿Cómo está Usted? (How are you?).
Introductory punctuation marks are helpful because they give you a heads-up as to the meaning of each sentence. When a character in a storybook in English exclaims, "You don't know who I am!" you have to wait for the end of the sentence to see if it's a question, an ordinary statement, or an angry shout. In Spanish, the exclamation point is right there at the beginning of the sentence, letting you know you should to raise your voice accordingly.
