Commas in Interrupters
rule: An introductory phrase is like a clause, but it doesn’t have its own subject and verb; it relies on the subject and verb in the main clause. Unless the phrase is very short (fewer than 5 words) and begins with a preposition (to, for, at, etc.), there should be a comma between the introductory phrase and the main clause.
example: Yes, you may chew gum during class.
Commas with Adjectives
Commas with Direct Addresses
rule: A compound sentence has two independent clauses joined by a coordinating junction, conjunctive adverb, and semicolon.
example: Tom reads novels, but jack reads comics.
3 sentences: We picked them up early but they still missed their plane.
