The power of a comma

1 Comment


 

It’s happened maybe once, maybe twice in your lifetime. You wrote something. You didn’t check it back. You mailed it,  posted it, sent it out. Your commas betrayed you. Again.

The placement of a comma is one of the most powerful tools in the English language. Why? Because it can totally change the meaning of what you are saying and more often than not, it’s hard to convince your reader of your real intention.

If you don’t believe me then have a fun read of this article entitled “A light hearted look at how punctuation can change meaning” taken from the CyberText Newsletter and then share your own punctuation story; we can’t wait to hear! 🙂
