Great article for linguists and those people who (like me) are irritated by the overuse of exclamation marks. Great name for it by the way – bangorrhea. Could it also be a flightless bird from Wales!

Do women do this more than men as the article claims?

I notice a lot of them [!] in students’ assignments and also far too many capitals on words that should never have them (Table, Chair etc). Anyone want to suggest a word for using capitals too much/indiscriminately? I will email suggestions to the Urban Dictionary?
