How to use the em dash when speech is interrupted

Took a few tries to actually capture video of it! Might have been a good idea to turn a light on too. Ooops.

Watch more Grammar Lessons videos: Let's talk about the difference between the en dash and the em dash. They sound very similar and look very similar but they are used in different ways. So the en dash looks like this (en -). It is about the width of the letter n. The em dash looks like this (em --) and it's about the width of the letter m. So that's how they get their names. Now how do we use them? We use the en dash in place of the word to. Oftentimes when we are talking about dates. So we might say from the years 200l to 2003 (2001-2003).That right there is the en dash. (She points to the dash between 2001 and 2003.) It is not the hyphen, it is not an em dash. It is that in between length of a dash called the en dash. You can also use it by saying January to March (January-March). Again the en dash is replacing the word to. It is kind of a short hand. Another way that you can use the en dash is if you're talking about a border perhaps.Say you want to say the Arizona Texas border, (Arizona-Texas) the en dash works well there too. We use an em dash, the longer dash, a different way. Essentially, it is a form of pause punctuation that can take the place of a comma, a semicolon. an ellipses. It is a way to set some information off in our sentence and say this is extra important or perhaps this isn't a side. Here is one example: You are my friend--My best friend-- in the world. So you can see how we have used the em dash to set off this information. It is not necessarily critical to the meaning of the sentence but it is some extra information and it adds emphasis.So the em dash can be really good for drama. In the past it has been frowned upon in formal writing but I think it is becoming increasingly popular in informal writing and in magazines, newspapers and essays. So you might find yourself using the em dash more and more.

Welcome to today's episode of SAT Monday! In this week's installment, Chris Lele introduces a versatile punctuation mark—the em dash (see what I did there?). First of all, get the name right! Many people mistakenly refer to the em dash( — ) as a hyphen or dash. As for its usage, the em dash is most commonly used to take the place of commas, parenthesis, or colons. Check out the following example: Her three favorite singers—Justin, Bey, and Adele—are performing in her home town. Because we are using the em dash to offset a list, there must be two present: one at the start of the list, and one at the end. If you something on the SAT like: Her three favorite singers—Justin, Bey, and Adele, are performing in her home town. or Her three favorite singers, Justin, Bey, and Adele—are performing in her home town. These are both incorrect! If you use an em dash to offset a list in the middle of a sentence, you must use two.

The Emdash is an often over-looked punctuation mark that has a lot of uses. It can be used for subordination or coordination. Meaning the side information added inside the dashes (like you would otherwise use in a rhetorical clause or in parenthesis like this) can be a full sentence, or it can be a fragment. Dashes are used to add information at the beginning, end, or middle of a sentence. And they come with some added benefits including: mimicking the way Donald Drumpf is always interrupting himself when he's talking, forcing a reader's eyes to dash across a page, and making a sentence stand out.

Ohio Academic Standards 6.2.a Use punctuation (commas, parentheses, dashes) to set off nonrestrictive/ parenthetical elements.* 8.2.a Use punctuation (comma, ellipsis, dash) to indicate a pause or break.

Welcome, YouTubers, to the 19th episode of Grammar Hero! In this series, I take a look at the 26 most common grammatical mistake people make. Truthfully, I decided to create this series for several reasons. First, let’s face it: most English teachers, especially high school teachers and professors, don’t usually cover these topics, even though they really should. More often than not, college professors assume you learned grammar in high school, and similarly, high school teachers assume you learned it in middle school. Given this sad reality, I hope Grammar Hero helps fill that void. Second, many of the grammar videos on YouTube aren’t that great. For example, some videos give awesome explanations but don’t give you enough guided practice. As it the case for many things in life, including grammar, practice really makes perfect. You’ll see that I include plenty of practice in each of my videos. Third, grammar is the backbone of language and particularly good writing. To write well, you must develop a deep understanding of grammar. Unfortunately, there’s no way to avoid this. Fortunately enough, grammar is something everyone, including even those who are learning language as a second language, can learn quickly and easily, and as you progress through my videos, you’ll notice that many of them are less than five minutes long. In light of this, you could realistically watch all of my videos in one afternoon. It’s that easy. Here's a list of all of the topics I will cover in this series: 1. Two, To, and Too 2. They're, Their, There 3. “Alot” and A lot 4. Your and You’re 5. Its and It’s 6. Your vs. You're 7. Then vs. Than 8. Me vs. I 9. Farther vs. Further 10. i.e. and e.g. 11. Less vs. Fewer 12. However 13. Despite and Notwithstanding 14. Between vs. Among vs. Amongst 15. Who vs. Whom and Whose vs. Who's 16. Commas: Elements in a list 17. Commas: Independent and Dependent Clauses 18. Commas: Introductory Phrases 19. Semicolons 20. Advanced Semicolons 21. Conjunctions 22. En Dash vs. Em Dash 23. Capitalization 24. Possessives 25. Dangling Modifiers 26. British English vs. American English
