Abstract

Punctuation marks have recently attracted attention within the linguistics community mostly from a syntactic perspective. In this paper, we aim to give a preliminary account of information-based aspects of punctuation marks, drawing our points from examples and links with related phenomena such as intonation. We give our initial treatment within the Discourse Representation Theory.
