Someone recently pointed out that on this list we *do* use English
punctuation marks (though Okrand doesn't in his material).  I think it's a
helpful convention, so long as we realize that it's just a convention, a
way of making things easier for us to parse, not a redefining of where
sentences start or stop or whatever.
