Monster Monday: Monstrous Commas in October

Commas are the focus for the Monster Monday blogs, designed to provide insight into the whys and whereofs of Punctuation, those pesky little marks that trip us up.

We have several blogs on the comma and its various uses planned, starting in the month of October. That will finish Function 3 of Punctuation: Links that Separate.

Following will be Function 4: Short-Cutters (our chief example is the apostrophe) followed by F5: Special Marks (every remaining English punx mark that we haven’t covered–not very many remain).

When you can find exercises but not clear explanations, HSHelps is here for you. Check back on the Mondays of October for the comma blogs–including those neat punx marks that behave like commas () {} [] and the dash–but not the slash!
