Punctuation provides pause and creates style

Let’s look at some uses of the comma that cannot be ignored!

  • Use a comma to separate a state from a city.

  • Use a comma in the month-day-year style (December 23, 2020) but not in the month-year format (December 2020).

  • Use a comma after the salutation in personal correspondence. (Note below)

  • Use a comma to separate numbers of four or more digits into groups of three.


Note: When writing formal or business correspondence, use a colon after the salutation.

Example: Dear Chief Justice: NOT Dear Chief Justice,


Until next time, happy writing,


Jackie
