Summary B. Concluding statement It?s Critical: The Comma The text covers the uses for the comma in detail, with several supporting review exercises. Here are a couple of additional uses to remember:Use a comma to set off words or phrases that emphasize. Example: The banana, almost black, was perfect for making Mama?s banana bread. Another example: Barb?s laugh, high and off-pitch, was annoying.Use a comma when a reader might misinterpret the meaning without it. Example: Soon after, David spoke to me about going to the dance. Without the comma, most readers would view the entire sentence as a dependent clause and would expect the rest of the sentence to follow. Instead, it shows action that obviously followed some previous action detailed in earlier content. See how different this sentence reads: Soon after David spoke to me about going to the dance, Jim asked if I would like to go with him. Don?t insert commas unnecessarily. Often, in fear that they?re leaving out a comma, beginning writers go comma crazy. If you can?t find a rule for it, you probably don?t need it. For example: [INCORRECT] Shane demanded, to know where the money was hidden. Note: This sentence separates the verb (demanded) from its object (money). Another example: [INCORRECT] Sara walked down the aisle, and tripped. Note: This sentence has two action verbs (walked, tripped). The actions do not need to be separated. However, if ? and only if ? you intend to emphasize that Sara tripped, then you may insert the comma to slow down the reader for the surprise of the second verb. Use this sparingly.Format Requirements (Print this page)Use the following format requirements on all submissions.Writing Style APA (American Psychological Association)Note: To find detailed information on APA manuscript style guidelines on the Internet, go to www.apastyle.org.Margins 1 all sidesParagraphs Single-spaceDouble-space between paragraphsIndent first line of each paragraphHeadings BoldType Style and Size Times New Roman, 12 pointSoftware MS WordStudent/Assignment InformationThe following information should be on the first page on the top left side of the page in the format provided below.
