The subsystem of punctuation has an unusual status in the system of language. It is dependent on conventionally accepted rules and it takes part in interrelations, determined by subjective perception. The paper discusses the semiotic aspect of these interrelations. Being the ultimate sign system, language subordinates other sign systems and single signs. The punctuation system is one of them, its semantic nature cannot be disputed. Little research has been dedicated to punctuation as a system, which makes it an interesting and challenging subject of scientific investigation.
