Would you get a better response if the spelling of "cholesterol" were a bit more consistent?

Hi kaymeis,

Another member of the Forum (who has forgotten his login) took the time to email me a bit of a critique regarding your use of commas. I've posted it here on his behalf, as I didn't want to make him do any more work!!!

Hope you find it helpful.

According to an English professor I had back in 1989 at the University of Maryland Asian Division (Okinawa, Japan), commas are the most over used punctuation in the English language. He said that if people would stick to 3 rules, they would avoid most of the common errors. Below are his rules.

1. Lists - Always use a comma when listing. Example: Jane had a purse, hat, gloves and shoes. A comma could be inserted after the word "gloves" but it is no longer a requirement.

2. Joiners - Always use a comma when you use a joiner. Joiners are words that put two (2) complete sentences together. Example: They decided to go to the movies, but Jane changed her mind. I have underlined the two complete sentences. When read, it is clear that the "but" could be removed and a period could replace the comma after the word "movies." These two phrases could stand alone as complete sentences. The joiner in this case is the word "but." So, and, for, and yet are also joiners.

3. Introductory phrases - Always separate the introductory phrase from the sentence with a comma. Example: According to an English professor I had back in 1989 at the University of Maryland Asian Division, commas are one of the most over used punctuations in the English language. The introductory phrase has been underlined in this sentence. Introductory phrases are not complete sentences. They are always at the beginning of the sentence. They are always followed by a complete sentence that could stand alone without the introductory phrase.

As a final note, my professor said that even though there are other uses for commas in writing, if one is careful to observe these 3 rules most instances of over-use will be avoided.
