This week we will be discussing commas. Here are the comma rules you will need to know:
- Use a comma and a coordinating conjunction (and, but, or nor, for, yet) to join two simple sentences
- Use a single comma to indicate that a word or words have been omitted, or to avoid a possible misreading
- Use single commas to separate three or more items in a series
- Do not use a comma after an introductory adverb phrase that comes immediately before the verb it modifies
- Use commas to separate the parts of dates and addresses within sentences.
- Use a comma after the salutation of a friendly letter, and after the closing of all letters.
