When you type a sentence, do you use two spaces after the period or one? I've been using two all along and just realized I don't have to be doing so. If only I had a time machine. erm

You mean "space", right?


And I agree. I never understood the two spaces argument.

"It's so you can tell that it's the end of the sentence and not a/n abbreviation/acronym/etc." I heard another say it was to make it easier to see and also to give the reader the indication that the sentence has ended.




That's all rubbish.

Well, I'll tell you why. In the old days when we used type writers, we were taught to use two spaces. It had to do with words fitting the margins or something like that... Anyway, computers allow you to auto fit stuff and such that it is not needed anymore. However, in general, both ways are acceptable. I googled it.

in yearbook sometimes we had to use extra spaces to fill in gaps and stuff
the only place ive seen more than one space after a word is in articles

Two, as I learned to type on an old manual typewriter.

It is a carryover from the days of typewriters with monospaced typefaces to improve readability. Today, the use of proportionally spaced fonts makes it unnecessary to double space after a full stop.
