Comma Rules 1-3 Ms. Winsley PLEASE NOTE: You will need to take notes on the 3 (THREE) rules AND the examples that are given. Rule 1
Use a comma to separate items in a series or when you list items. Examples 3 items I like soccer football and basketball.
2 commas Examples 4 items I read poetry novels memoirs and plays. 3 commas Examples It doesnt matter how many items are listed.
The man complained of back aches headaches stomach aches dry skin bad breath stinky feet heartburn weak knees itchy scalp poor eyesight toe fungus and a strange mole on his back. Every item needs to be separated by a comma! Rule 2 Use a comma to separate two or more adjectives that precede (in front of) a noun.
Example The woman is described as angry and bitter, The angry bitter woman gave the guy a round-house kick to the face. so we put a comma in between the two adjectives.
Example The cool aloof student claimed his dog ate his homework. Where does the comma go? Where are the adjectives in this
sentence? Rule 3 Place a comma before a conjunction when it joins (connects) two sentences together. Coordinating Conjunctions For And
Nor But Or Yet So Dont forget these conjunctions!! REMEMBER: FANBOYS
Example Chuck Norris once kicked a horse in the chin and its descendants are known today as giraffes. There are two sentences in the sentence above. To set the sentences apart, we put the comma in front of
the coordinating conjunction. Example Sticks and stones may break your bones but a Chuck Norris glare will liquefy your kidneys. Are there two complete sentences? So, the comma goes before the
conjunction. Example One sentence. Chuck Norris once went skydiving but promised to never do it again. One Grand Canyon is enough. There are not two complete sentences.
so there is NO COMMA! Two sentences? Um, No. Example The KEY is to make SURE there is a sentence (Items in a series!)
on either side Paper beats rock rock beats scissors and scissors beats paper but Chuck Norris beats all three at the same time. REMEMBER: A COMPLETE Sentence has a SUBJECT and a PREDICATE!
of the conjunction! Recap Rule #1: Use a comma to separate items in a series. Rule #2: Use a comma to separate two or more adjectives that precede (are in front of) a noun. Rule #3:
Place a comma before a conjunction when it joins (connects) two sentences together. Quiz (to be turned in) Place the comma in the correct location 1. 2. 3.
