1. I am calling you regarding your interview.

What about this example sentence in red which had a comma after the initial word “however”.
A hint on even more comma rules?
Please teach them to us as well after this lesson which has already been very instructive.

Dmytro1993

Thanks!JAMES
Nice job
I got 9 out of 10
JAMES I want to ask you some Question
What are the differences between the two sentence the comma go?
I always take a book to read yet,I never get the time to open it.
I have not known her long,yet I feel very close to her.

Muad Abdiaziz

    May I try to answer your question?
    The first phrase I think it is not correct. I have 2 versions for it:
    1. I always take a book to read, yet I never get time to open it (Yet is a conjunction = but, nevertheless, however)
    2.I always take a book to read, but I never get time to open it yet.( Yet is an adverb = until now, so far)(As an adverb is usually situated in negative statements, at the end of the sentence)
    The second phrase I think the sense is: even though I don’t know her long, I feel close to her. (yet -conjunction)

tavi

you made it super easy to understanding!

sajisaji

Very good video lesson Mr. James. Thank you so much. What about the following two sentences:
– Mr. E wants to buy batman, superman, or spiderman comic.
– Mr. E wants to buy batman or superman or spiderman comic.
which one is better?

Muhammad Ihsan

    Let me give it a try.
    In my humble opinion , the first is much better.
    As you can see , the second one has repeated word “or” being placed into is a little bit unnecessary.
    Remember that the “comma girl” we used not only means to set interval between words / sentences but can give us a pause to breath while speaking.
    That’s why I choose the top one.

    MustChuck

    Hey there. By my knowledge,you missed the two phrases.
    you can’t use the comma before the ‘or’ in this sentence, because «or spiderman comic» has not a complete meaning.
    So you should say: -Mr.E wants to buy a batman, superman or spiderman comic.
    Just to remember, we still use a comma between batman and superman because we are enumerating

    LeoBorges

Excellent explanation, thank u sir.

ifamkky

Hi EngVid, I would like to know about IELTS writing! So, in IELTS writing is most important is the structure, point or others aspect? Undoubtedly, I know about the process of verification writing only formally. (task response, lexical resource, gramma, coherence and cohesion). And, examiner checks essays based on the structure or points? Thanks EngVid!

FarrukhR

I’d like to thank you both James and Mr E for this great lesson!

Júlio César L Sousa

Thanks James for this important lesson!

Choose a conjunction to express the truth :-)

(Neither) I desire to learn the English language, (for | and | nor | but | or | yet | so) I watch videos in EngVid.

Hi Sir! I’ve been watching a lot of videos on this site and I am always satisfied with the explanations. I’d just like to have a question. Is it possible to say this: “Sir, you said I would only answer one question. So, I am not going to answer the second question.” I mean is it okay to start a sentence with this conjunction? Thank you so much.
