2. I really wanted cereal this morning, but I didn’t have any milk.

Basic Rules for Commas
1. Use a comma any time you combine two independent clauses with any of the seven coordinating
conjunctions (and, but, so, for, or, nor, yet):
1) I can’t go to the dance, but you should go without me.
2) I need to buy a dress, so I am going to the mall.

2. In most cases, don’t use a comma between an independent clause and a dependent clause:
1) Correct: I lost my cellphone while I was at the dance.
2) Incorrect: I lost my cellphone, while I was at the dance.

3) Correct: The dance was fun once my boyfriend arrived.

4) Incorrect: The dance was fun, once my boyfriend arrived.
Basic Rules for Commas
3. Use a comma when a dependent clause is followed by an independent clause:
1) If you go to the dance, don’t forget to bring your cellphone.
2) When you are walking to the dance, be careful not to break your high heels!
4. Use a comma when you start a sentence with a word or phrase that introduces it, like this:
1) After the dance, we should go out to a late-night diner
2) Yesterday afternoon, I went to the mall to buy a dress for the dance.
5. Use two commas in the middle of sentence to separate out information that isn’t essential to
sentence’s meaning, but only provides extra details. One comma goes after the first part, and one
goes after the second, like this:
1) The dance, held in the school gym, ended at midnight.
2) My dress, which was handmade, was perfect for the dance.
Basic Rules for Commas
6. Use commas when you are listing three or more things (words, phrases or clauses). Look at these
1) Correct: I drove to the dance with Sally, Sam, and Tom. (Correct comma use)
2) Incorrect: I drove to the dance with Sally Sam and Tom. (Missing commas)
7. Don’t use commas when you are listing less than three things:
1) Correct: I drove to the dance with Sally and Sam. (No commas necessary)
2) Incorrect: I drove to the dance with Sally, and Sam. (Incorrect comma use)
8. Use commas when you have more than one adjective in a row describing something:
1) Correct: My dress was blue, sparkly, and long.
2) Incorrect: My dress was blue sparkly and long.
Basic Rules for Commas
◦ i) Don’t use commas in “that” clauses; restrictive clauses with word combinations like “_____ that
◦ Correct: The dress that Sally bought for the dance is blue.
◦ Incorrect: The dress, that Sally bought for the dance, is blue

◦ Correct: The girl that wins prom queen will get a gold crown.
◦ Incorrect: The girl, that wins prom queen, will get a gold crown.
◦ j) Finally, you should use commas when you simply need a pause in a sentence:
◦ Hello, how are you?
◦ Sally, don’t forget to bring your cellphone to the dance.
