I’m having some difficulties on understanding the syllable, like, if you have a word, and i want to know how many syllable does it have.

thanks Alex

ghost2005

HELLO THERE…

I come across a book that talks merely on technical writing. In the book, it was mentioned that when the writer wants to quate someone then he should use a colon.
As per this lesson, comma is used when we quate.

Please, advise for this and the one posted on june 17th 2009

AGEELMA

    I think it’s the same as the example 7.

    Anna

I,Reynaldo,need to put more attention in class from Alex.In order to, improve faster.

Hi, all. I got 100% again! Alex, one question: Should we put comma between sentences if the independent one comes first?

Alena20

    According to the video, it’s no need to put comma if the independent one comes first.

    Anna

    As Anna noted, if the independent clause comes first, you do not need to place a comma between it and the dependent clause.

    Thanks for the question, Alena20.

    Alex

hi, dear alex thanks for the intersting,nice lessons.i have some dficalty to use past partsipl if you could help me please.

Hi,
Your lesson was excellent.
I’m a teacher of English. I was told to teach students to write something like this:
John is tall, dark and handsome.
According to you, in this lesson, we need another comma after “and”. I will take your word for it, but could you explain why there should/shouldn’t be a comma after “and” in sentences like this?
Thanks in advance 4 your answer.

Hi Alex,
it is very very interesting lesson, hope you upload more on how to use puncuations, Chhoeun

Sim Chhoeun, Camboian

I would like to clarify on the use of comma especially when you are stating a list of items or write a series of adjectives. Is there really a comma after the last adjective or before the linking word AND? For example: books, pencils, bags, and laptops.

I have observed that others wrote them without a comma after the last item or adjective or before the linking/conjunctio word AND.

Thank you!

alistair

Thank you Alex,your classes are very useful for me.Now, I can understand more how to use commas correctly.I will also help to teach other people how to use commas.Thank you.

Great video. This is much before than my text book. You explained it in a very simple term.

Martha

He’s teaching you all about grammar and punctuation. Looking at these comments, I suspect most of you didn’t pay attention. Lack of capitalization, lack of punctuation, and/or misplaced punctuation (specifically commas, which, proves my point) in almost every one.

Kim.

Very simple and clear, thank you very much.
How about a lesson about comma splices and ran-ons?

Hey Alex,
thanks for this lesson. I’ve gone through many rules and grammar summaries but none of them expain punctation regarding commas so clear. I’m going to write this down to never forget it again. :)

anri

Good for watching,thank a lot,Have a nice day Alex.

suthus

Fine !

optimism

Alex,

In the video you say that a comma is required before a quotation. This is correct, but you disregard the fact that having a comma before a quotation can lead to a comma splice or a sentence fragment. Commas are not always required before quotations, sometimes it is useful to use a colon, a comma, or have absolutely no punctuation prior to the quotation.

Proper quotation integration is the name of the game. Avoiding comma splices and sentence fragments is essential.

Tom

Thomas T.Baby from India.

I find that you are putting comma before and it is not correct, as either comma or and is necessary.

best regards Thomas

Thomas

I got 5 out of 6

Gladis

Thanks a lot. I appreciate your academic aproach, logic and effective delivery. This topic is really important. However, some examples are missed. It would be nice if you tell more about the position of the author’s words in the direct quotation and add some info on the transition words – that’s difficult for the students.

shanti

The lesson on commas was really useful.
Thanks alot!
:)

Leena

There are more than 10 rules about the comma use. I am a sort of confused now about separating the short items using comma.
I am used to write in this way : I bought fruit, vegetables, flour and meat in a supermarket rather than I bought fruit, vegetables , flour, and meat in a supermarket.
if the items in the series is group of words, comma is added before and + last item, e.g.,
The firm is a place where I work, read, take a nap sometimes , and have my lunch and supper.
But, yesterday afternoon, I spend time with my family and friends, making food, watching show on TV, and having a walk on the beach.
Am I wrong ? The rule has changed ? Correct me.

stupor67

I agree with Tom’s ideas about quotation.
Dad said ‘ You come with me.’
Dad said: ‘ You come with me.’
Dad said, ‘ You come with me.’
All of them are clear to understanding.

stupor67

This is only my own idea : ‘and’ is put between the second and last word/ or words, implying that we are coming to the end of the sentence.

stupor67

Now, I got answers regarding ‘ comma used in short item’ and “why we need identifying clause.”
1. It seems that the old school rule has been replaced by updated one. Many writers wrote in this way : ,and + the last word/ words.
2. Generally , general word gives us an dull idea or may have multiple interpretation , further questions etc. To prevent the trouble, we need to give more details so that they become specific, e.g.,
I am staring at the cat that has two tails.
I am staring at a cat.
Some people said, abstract and general terms explain attitudes, ideas , explore relationships , such as contingency and priority ; concrete and specific words clarify and illustrate between abstract/ concrete noun and general / specific language, blending them naturally. To achieve this mix , use abstract and general to state your ideas, use concrete and specific to illustrate and support them.
The given sample sentences were :
1) The food ( general ) was appealing ( abstract )
2 ) the warm bread with nut-brown -crust and yeasty aroma made my mouth water.
Obviously , with such a mix, the meaning of sentence become more vivid and more interesting.
Of course, uncountable noun is still a hard part to me. Somethings in mind shift into the countable nouns make me uncomfortable and panic. I have to overcome it.

stupor67

Great lesson ,but the audio was poor.

Dear teacher:

May I ask some questions about the ”,” in advance?

1. What kinds of complex sentence structures should be used “,”?
2. IF “,” locate different location, are there any different meanings?

It would be grateful if you could teach me.
~Thank you~

gariela9488

Hello Alex, thank you for the helpful lecture.
I have a question about the last, ‘transition’ one.

You gave an example of ‘therefore,consequently’.
And if i’m right, both of them are conjunctive adverbs.
So i’m wondering if conjunction, such as but, yet, and although can also be used?

I know he is right. But, ~ ~~

like this kind of sentence
for example,

braneo

Your lesson can teaches 1 more rule.
exited!

Thank you very much . I think it’s good way and so effective because you illustrate in clear,and simple way.

R5emy

Firstly, thank you very much for your informative lecture.
Secondly, I got 2 points wrong number 1 and 2 “commas to separate a list of similar words or phrases”
Cambridge webpage said: “We use commas to separate a list of similar words or phrases:

It’s important to write in clear, simple, accurate words.

They were more friendly, more talkative, more open than last time we met them.

We do not normally use a comma before and at the end of a list of single words:

They travelled through Bulgaria, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Poland.

American English does use a comma in lists before and:

We took bread, cheese, and fruit with us.” http://dictionary.cambridge.org/grammar/british-grammar/punctuation

So, I think my answers were right as both can be possibly correct

Emillia

There is a problem with quiz 6. I think the answer should be C. Will any one explain it to me??

Thank you, Alex, for this such a helpful lesson. You speak in a very clear way, and you are quite didactic too. I have always wanted to learn the rules of comma in English, which are a little bit different in Portuguese. Your lesson has helped me a lot. See you in the next video!

Hi Alex:

Maybe I’m wrong, but I se to write a colon instead of a comma before quoting SO. He said: “I’m back” instead of He said, “I’m back”.

Thanks & greets from Argentina.

    Holla! Sexy man!…;-) You can use the Colon to emphasis, or to discribe a list.

I had two mistakes. For example in John is tall, dark, and handsome. Normally, in spanish the “and” replace the comma when is a diferent adjetive.

Herlen Murieles

I´m surprise there is a comma before “and” maybe because in spanish when we separate things the last one has no comma therefore we use “Y” which is the meaning of “and” in spanish, but is very good to know this things. Thanks a lot teacher.

5. Which of the following is correct?
I was feeling very hungry, so I went to the store to buy some food.

Alex, isn’t it like: Suzy didn’t study. Therefore, she didn’t pass.
comma after the conjuction?

Because it was raining, I stayed home and watched television.
Because it was raining, I stayed home, and watched television.
This is a case of a dependent clause coming before an independent clause. To link the two, we must use a comma between each clause.
Before “and” there is no comma? idependent clause.

Klausss

above all , i really appreciate this awesome vedio about one of the most important writing condition .

Hi Alex,

« I bought apples, tomatoes, and carrots. »
Sorry, i don’t understand why the comma between tomatoes and « and »
I bought apples, tomatoes, carrots or I bought apples, tomatoes and carrots without comma before and.
Thank you!

VLucia

Why in the number six the comma does not comes before and ?

I am absolutely elated to find such a helpful, beginners guide to the composition of English in it’s, in my opinion most tangible written form.

Hello Alex,
First of all thank you for the helpful videos. I just have a question. The point 1: you said two independent clauses if joined by word like “and” will have a comma in it. For the last question in the quiz I selected the option where it said “Because it was raining, I stayed home, and watched television”.
Now “I stayed home” is an independent clause and watched television is also an independent clause? joined by the word “and”. Shouldn’t we have a comma here too.
Thanks
