The History of @


  1. Rita,
    I found your facts fascinating. I wonder if we will see less of the exclamation point. At least less in fiction. Many hold to the the idea that the description determines the emotion so the exclamation point is not needed. New symbols are evolving now that texting is so common and tweeting is on the rise.

  2. Interest is enough for me. No need for a moral. I can't imagine @ was used in the 16th century!!!

  3. Thanks girls. I guess we could say, "little things mean a lot."
    Now we're not using our darling little inverted commas, but the uninteresting ' Sigh.
