We're not talking about punctuation in {pIqaD}, of which we have
examples in the SkyBox cards. We're talking about punctuation in the
Latin transcription, which is a convention only. The convention
established in canon for regular text (as opposed to poetry, or when
dissecting a sentence for grammatical exposition) is to use commas,
periods, and question marks as appropriate.
