‽The interrobang, variously written as a question mark superimposed over an exclamation mark , as a question mark followed by an exclamation mark (?!), or the other way around (!?) was born in the 1960’s, but because most keyboards do not allow the typeover of the two marks, it did not gain wide usage.
The current AP Stylebook does not mention the interrobang.
The 17th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style mentions it only for its absence, with the comment that they are making a list and considering it for the next edition. Its absence in the CMOS indicates that it is not appropriate (yet) for formal writing.
- “Can’t you see the fire?! It’s coming right at us!”
- “Will we get out in time?! Can’t you get the car started?!”
- “Did you ever see a cat wearing glasses!?”
Which comes first, the exclamation mark or the question mark depends upon the intent of the exclamation.
