Punctuation Ambiguity

Punctuation ambiguity is when it is unclear where one sentence ends and the other begins. One way of using this is by having a word or phrase that could either be tagged on the last sentence or start out the next sentence. In the conscious conversation this phrase is usually part of the second sentence. By using the tonality in the phrase that you embedded the commands in the first sentence with, the unconscious will associate the phrase with the end of the first sentence. Some examples of commonly used phrases and words are:
  • Now
  • For me
  • To me
  • With me
Example: I'm sure that there have been many times when you feel that connection. Now with me , when I feel that dose to this person
