In academic writing, however, you must strive to use appropriate punctuation and capitalization. Why do you need to use appropriate punctuation, including plurals and possessives, in your writing?
There are occasions when inaccurate punctuation or spelling can alter the entire sense of a phrase.
''A cross-section of the public'' specifies a broad range of people but if you omit the hyphen, [ the group is merely annoyed rather than being representative of the population.
A panda might be described as an animal that ''eats shoots and leaves'' but if you state ''eats, shoots and leaves''
then you have a creature that shows off its skills with a gun before departing.
