Is it ok to use an exclamation mark in the middle of a sentence like in the following? (first exclamation mark)

"Hurry!" said Mark," we can't be late!"

Or in:

Hurry! we need to go!

Best Answer

That's not an exclamation mark in the middle of a sentence, that's two separate sentences. English has an imperative mood and exclamations like "Hurry!" or "Run!" are complete sentences as the subject is implied and the predicate is the only word in the sentence. You should write "Hurry!" said Mark, "We can't be late!" or "Hurry! We need to go!" as "We can't be late!" and "We need to go!" are independent sentences from
