As far as i can tell you have at least four meaning for the word "period"

Period - eg "period of time"
Period - eg "i just got my period"
Period - eg "put a period at the end of your sentance" - aka full stop
Period - eg "eeew, i have maths next period" - aka class/lesson

i just think its silly to have so many meanings for one word.


There's also at the end of the sentence, when you want to get your point across. eg -- Ice cream is the coolest. Period.


But usually, people only say 'Period.' at the end of sentences when they call the punctuation mark '.' a period.
I.e I'd say, ' Ice cream is the coolest. Full stop.'


I don't exist. omo

The typo would be a mistake on phpBB's part, not PPT's. ^^

We call them periods in Canada. I've never heard it called a "full stop".

"Full stop" sounds like something you'd do while driving or playing music.

What if the world decided to end this argument by adopting a telegraphic style so that everyone wrote "stop" instead of a thingie? That would be a disaster.

this is an example stop my dad is listening to a football game stop the washing machine is making sounds stop i am posting stop go is what a green light means stop a red light means stop stop

It would be in all caps too. >_<

Maybe I should start calling it a full stop...then it wouldn't be synonymous with something that tends to put any happiness I might be experiencing to a full stop.

Or I could just use other punctuation! There are so many solutions! We can just ignore it altogether! Who's with me? Who thinks I'm crazy? I do!
