Commas, how to use them

Some grammar rules (and embarrassing mistakes!) transcend the uniqueness of different regions and style guides. This new International Grammar section by OnlineBookClub.org ultimately identifies those rules thus providing a simple, flexible rule-set, respecting the differences between regions and style guides. You can feel free to ask general questions about spelling and grammar. You can also provide example sentences for other members to proofread and inform you of any grammar mistakes.

Commas, how to use them

Post by davidejioforr »

I always get errors and mistakes concerning overuse or underuse of commas.
Personally, outside some obvious situations I feel the use of commas is purely optional and dependent on whether you want to use it or not
E.g "I liked the inclusion of a green bear in the story, which really helped the plot"
In this situation, I don't have to use a comma, but if I didn't, i could be penalised by one reviewer for doing so, and if i didn't, I could be penalised for omitting it
It's all just confusing
