Acronym from 'Daily Oral Language', where you correct sentences so’s that they make sense.
When I was doing DOL in the 8th grade last year, one of the sentences I corrected I did so by adding an em-dash(—)——and it fit in context as a clause divider quite right, mind you——but they were all like "...what?". Yet now that I'm in big ole highschool, the tell you specifically *to* use it...pffft. I knew what I was talking ’bout back then, damnit!!
