2. Use to off-set information or enclose interrupting words.

 

Ex.

“The sheer decibel level of the noise around us is not enough to make us cranky, irritable, or aggressive. (It can, however, affect our mental and physical health, which is another matter.)

                                                                      —Maya Angelou, I Know Why                                                                                                     the Caged Bird Sings

Ex. “Four items are on the agenda for tonight?s meeting: (1) current treasury figures, (2) current membership figures, (3) the budget for renovations, and (4) the campaign for soliciting additional public contributions”(Troyka and Hesse 449).
