Good English writing is like a good dish (a good meal): it has just the right amount of commas, periods (fullstops), question and exclamation points; just as a good meal has the right amount of salt and pepper, oregano, thyme and other spices. So, how do you know how much to spice or how much punctuation to use?

Does everybody know Victor Borge's comedy routine, "Phonetic Punctuation?"

That is a very good matrephor. Punctuations are to an essay what spices are to a dish. But it is not easy for a non-native speaker to put these 'spices thing' just appropriately into an essay.
