Descrição
Have you ever heard about diaeresis? No, that’s not what you think! Diaeresis is a symbol consisting of two dots that we sometimes put over a vowel in many languages, including English. In this video Mary Norris, an editor and a proofreader for the New Yorker magazine, nicknamed Comma Queen, will explain when to use diaeresis in the English language in detail, as well as give us a demonstration of how to use some big-scale office supplies.
