The Comma

I wonder what would have happened if there did not exist a comma. Comma are used to rest, for a while, like this 😛 while still maintaining the flow of the conversation. Though there have been a lot of warnings on its overuse as I did in the previous sentence, I just can’t help it. I love it, a tiny worm looking thing that comes in handy for every idea I feel the need to share with others.

I am not averse to any punctuation mark. But I observe that I rarely use semicolons. Commas are an integral part of my writing and they have often brought home some trouble when my exam papers are checked. But still, there is a mutual understanding between the two of us and comma is still a strong companion for me .

Others who too have their faith in comma are:

In honor of the comma

Comma trauma

Romancing the comma

Playing with dots and commas

To comma or not to comma

The comma user

I love you oxford comma

The life of a comma

Punctuation

and there are many more…
