|1 Nephi 14:3 and Punctuation|
Feb. 27th, 2009 at 3:24 pm
Punctuation is important.Â The Book of Mormon uses dashes/hyphens quite a bit and the choice of an em dash versus an en dash makes a significant difference in how a particular passage may be read, pronounced and understood.
One particular construction in 1 Nephi Chapter 14:3 effectively demonstrates the difference and we should be careful how we read this verse out loud in the home or at church.
