  • Use brackets sparingly to add something to the sentence, for example, the resident (from number 10) asked a question. Often, commas will suffice.
  • The full stop comes outside the bracket unless what is inside is a full sentence.
  • Remember that any sentence in which you use brackets should still make sense

Also see emphasis.
