Yes Comma, No Comma

Posted by & filed under EAP, Education, English Composition, infographic.

The serial comma, also known as the Oxford comma, always sparks a discussion among the teachers, and its rules are not well represented in the textbooks. That creates more confusion in the classroom. This poster makes some clarification when the Oxford comma can be omitted and why.

    Just last week a few Science teachers were discussing this Oxford comma… some of us expressed our appreciation for it, and others were perturbed by it. At the end of the discussion though, we were grateful that we did not teach English Composition!:)… English Grammar was the first subject I ever taught… The English Language continues to evolve.
