I was taking the English transcription exam for the first time yesterday and ran into some trouble when I was deciding how to punctuate one of the audio examples. It was the interview with Denise Richardson and her guest on the show basically answers a question in a giant run on sentence. I got a 77% on this example and I am almost certain it was because of the way I broke up her answer using different punctuation. Should I just use commas or try to separate ideas that are similar the best I can? Any other tips regarding how to sort these sort of situations out?
