Failed Punctuation Marks

  • The Mirrored Question Mark was created in 1575, to denote sarcasm or signal a rhetorical question.
  • The Upside Down Exclamation Mark was introduced in 1668, to signal irony.

These new marks and their iterations came in various manuscripts in the 18th and the 19th century but never caught on.
