How to use the exclamation mark ?

There is only one use of the exclamation mark:

  • After an exclamation of surprise, shock or dismay, which is generally a short sentence or phrase expressing very strong feeling (especially one beginning with ‘What’ or ‘How’) [What a wonderful surprise!]
  • Note: Exclamation marks should be used sparingly and usually not at all in formal writing.
