Punctuation

Serbian and Croatian Braille differ in quotation marks, brackets, and in the period/full stop vs. apostrophe.[1] There is less punctuation reported for Slovene and Macedonian Braille, but what there is matches Serbian conventions.

Blank cells in the tables are unattested.

Single punctuation:

Print , .[1] ? ! '[1] ; : * - _ / & § and ¶
Croatian ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
Serbian ? ? ?? ?

Paired punctuation:

Print "..."[1] '...' (...)[1] [...] {...} /.../
Croatian ??? ??? ??? ??? ???
Serbian ??? ????? ??? ????? ?????

Formatting

? ? ? ? ? ? ?
(num.) (end
num.)
(Caps) (CAPS) (l.c.) (emph.) (super-
script)

The superscript is reported for Croatian Braille; in Serbian Braille, ? is used for the virgule /. In Slovene Braille, the emphasis (bold/italic) marker ? is reported to be an abbreviation sign.

References

  1. ^ a b c d e The Croatian apostrophe ? is unusual by international standards, and it is possible the period and apostrophe were swapped in a copy error by Unesco (2013) and copied from them to other sources. Croatian Wikipedia gives ? for the period and ? for parentheses, both agreeing with Serbian Braille.
