Chinese writing is a series of symbols, which signify a word or person. So where is the punctuation in Chinese writing?
Neil, Bracknell

Answer

** Definitive **
Name: Kamari, Greenwich
Qualification: Half-Chinese
Answer: It's very similar as in English, except for the apostrophe S. You still have full stops, but they are a little circle instead of a little dot. You don't see them on signs as you never have punctuation on signs.
