interrobang


The interrobang is a seldom used question mark that expresses both surprise and a question at the same time, similar to the way people sometimes use a question mark and an exclamation point together in informal language, eg. "He did what?!"
Do you ever use interrobangs?

To be honest I only knew what they were called since there is George Hrab albumn called Interrobang. I do often use "?!" in informal writing but I have never been bothered to work out a keyboard shortcut to use an interrobang when typing.
Also, I really like saying "interrobang."
Cool piece of punctuation that I haven't used before. Once I figure out how to type one I'm sure I'll use them.
I had no idea such a thing existed! That's serious neat, thanks for posted the question, Jennifer. Now I'm going to have to figure out how to type an interrobang...
I didn't know this sign existed. Will be using it from now on‽

Yes, I know. I just used it incorrectly. Got a bit ahead of myself. Haha.

I have never heard of them.

I wouldn't know where(if on my computer keyboard they are.)

''You live and learn''................I'm speechless!
I've never heard of it before, but I think it is a great idea and wish that it was a key on all computers.

I didn't know there was a term for it, but yes I often use it - especially in verbal conversations with others. It looks cool, and takes a bit of the load off of asking a question/making a statement :P
How do you type it?
It's under special characters in Word.
Interrobang. I do like that!

And I love an exclamation mark!

I do think i have used this, but probably as "!?"

Never have a seen or used this awesome actual symbol.
