If you have been an avid reader of this blog, you have probably noticed my use of commas. Or, maybe, you haven’t paid any attention to them at all. According to this article from Huffington Post, one man discusses how commas may be a thing of the past in our life time.
Really? I can hear the screams of English teachers and professors around the world! One example the article gave was this statement: “Let’s eat, Grandma”. Now, let’s see how it would sound without the comma: “Let’s eat Grandma”. Well, that doesn’t sound right. The comma is mightier than the pen (corny, I know ).
I know my comma placement might not always be 100% accurate. However, I feel that my placement of the comma gives my reader an understanding of content. I think if commas were eliminated it would be extremely hard for me to understand the meaning of the written text. So, to the mighty comma: Keep calm and carry on!
Here is one more corny comma picture:
Hehe! It got a chuckle out me me ;).
