Le point-virgule est en danger. Il a disparu des journaux. Il se fait rare dans les romans. Même le comité de défense du point-virgule est maintenant introuvable sur la toile. « Il a lui-même disparu corps et biens, ce qui n’est pas bon signe » , nous dit Sylvie Prioul, auteure de La Ponctuation ou l’art d’accommoder les textes, appelée à la rescousse.
