7th & 8th Grade Grammar

This week we will be discussing commas.  Here are the comma rules you will need to know:

  1.  Use a comma and a coordinating conjunction (and, but, or nor, for, yet) to join two simple sentences
  2.  Use a single comma to indicate that a word or words have been omitted, or to avoid a possible misreading
  3.  Use single commas to separate three or more items in a series
  4.  Do not use a comma after an introductory adverb phrase that comes immediately before the verb it modifies
  5.  Use commas to separate the parts of dates and addresses within sentences.
  6.  Use a comma after the salutation of a friendly letter, and after the closing of all letters.
