1.Use dashes for Special Emphasis
A.Use a dash to set off a word or phrase that is not essential to the main idea in order to emphasize.
Ex. “The care-takers—those who are helpers, nurturers, teachers, mothers—are still systematically devalued.”—Ellen Goodman,
B.Commas or parentheses can also be used in place of dashes. However, they do not provide the same importance or urgency.
