word breaks matterPosted: December 30, 2015
Punctuation is important. It is a topic I have written about before. It matters not only in the case of written prose, but in other forms of communication as well. The sign below is in the window of a local Chinese restaurant, which in fact we really like.
To convey what they want to convey there should be a hyphen or comma between the words miles and minimum. Or better, move minimum down to the next line. As it stands the sign strangely suggests that you have to live more than five miles from the restaurant to get delivery.
