            In this show-stopping guide with more than 75 uniquely designed two-color spreads-a rollicking linguistic ride for fans of Eats, Shoots & Leaves and Just My Type-award-winning graphic designer Michael Arndt explores the typographic origins, names, and shapes of both common punctu...ation marks and symbols, as well as the proper and diverse usage of each. From the period to the question mark, the semicolon to the em dash, symbols and marks are an integral part of language. In graphically engaging spreads that utilize typography in an innovative way, Snails & Monkey Tails examines the evolution of these mighty linguistic tools-from the punctum, or point, created by an ancient scribe to the guillemet, used most commonly in lieu of quote marks by the French (and named in honor of a typographer Guillaume Le Be). With verve and insight, Michael Arndt explains their proper usage and how they came to be universally accepted today. Snails & Monkey Tails-Snails (@); Monkey Tails (&)-is packed with intriguing facts, history, stories, and lore, as well as grammar, explaining it clearly and with examples. What is the purpose of the comma-perhaps the most used symbol in the English language-and what are the proper uses of the asterisk Do quote marks go inside or outside punctuation What about a quote within a quote-a quote from someone quoting someone else How much space goes on either side of an ellipsis What's the difference between an en-dash and an em-dash Complete with a listing of useful terms and clear diagrams for creating typographical marks and symbols correctly on both PC and Apple computers, Snails & Monkey Tails is essential for bibliophiles, writers, grammarians, graphic designers, typography enthusiasts, logophiles, and anyone with a passion for the written word.

            The most enjoyable way to learn about an unfamiliar culture is through its stories--especially when they're told in two languages! This book introduces 40 stories from the Philippines through bilingual Tagalog and English texts presented on facing pages. Paired with cultural note...s, vocabulary lists, exercises, comprehension questions and free online audio recordings, Tagalog Stories for Language Learners is an excellent resource for intermediate language learners. This compilation includes a mix of traditional folktales retold for a modern audience, as well as several well-known works of contemporary Philippine literature. Along the way, you will meet fabulous mythological characters like the Bagobo goddess Mebuyan and the shape-shifting Aswang. Other characters cope with day-to-day issues, such as the domestic worker who cannot find her keys and a beauty queen who leaves behind her comfortable city life in order to help peasants in the countryside. Four of the stories are by well-known Filipino writers and are presented in complete or partially condensed form. These include: Estrangheritis by Inigo Ed. Regalado (1907)--The writer is critical of Filipinos who exalt all things foreign while, in fact, benefitting from their own land but unappreciative of their national culture. Desire by Paz Latorena (1928)--The story of a Filipino woman who has to deal with the narrow-mindedness of a foreigner who is far more interested in her body than in her personality. Greta Garbo by Deogracia Rosaro (1930)--Monina, who looks like Greta Garbo, plans a weekend getaway with her beau, only to be left at the station waiting, and later discovers he has gone on a honeymoon! Maria Elena Paterno's Sampaguita (1991)--Two popular legends about the Sampaguita (Philippine jasmine flower) which touch on the themes of courage and forbidden love. Stories from different periods are presented so learners get a feel for authentic Filipino texts.
