Video - Can you put a comma before ‘and’?
My most frequently asked question is "Can I put a comma before 'and'?". Good subject for a bit of fun then...
You Tube contains a very large number of videos about how to use apostrophes, so I decided we didn't need any more of those. I hope to have clarified the weighty matter of the comma and when it is OK to use it before the word 'and'. It is a mystery to me why this has ever become a matter of such importance in so many people's minds, but it has. A great number of English teachers over the last couple of generations seem to have hammered into their impressionable students' heads that you should never use a comma before 'and' - but I sometimes find it very useful.
Anyway - have a look at the video and I sincerely hope that all will be very clear from then onwards. Your comments will be most welcome.
