joannqn Posted January 17, 2011 Share Posted January 17, 2011 I was taught that you always put two spaced after every period or colon and one space between words, after commas, or after semi-colons. Apparently, it is becoming increasingly common to only use one space after periods. I've been using two spaces ever since I learned to type in 1987. The MLA website says that you can use either unless your instructor or editor requests otherwise. I can't imagine trying to retrain my thumb at this point. So, how many spaces do you put after a period? If you use two, do you plan on changing that? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
