Full Stop

Full stop

The punctuation mark full stop (.) is used to close sentences. A new sentence that follows a full stop has a capital letter.

Full stops are also used in writing abbreviations. This is becoming less common in British English.

Examples are: oz. for ounce (s), Prof. for professor, i.e. for in other words and e.g. for for example.
