TIPSY TODAY with Rogena
A little late with the TIPSY TODAY post, but I've been a tad busy editing.
So let's talk a little more about COMMAS. One can never be reminded too often as to the correct use of commas.
Use a comma to set off most conjunctive adverbs.
Conjunctive adverbs are words such as however, otherwise, therefore, similarly, hence, on the other hand, and consequently.
But do NOT use a comma after the conjunctive adverbs then, thus, soon, now, and also.
In the following example, a semicolon is used to separate two independent clauses.
EX: The sick woman needs to be given treatment; otherwise, her illness will become fatal.
Okay... That's all I've got today, but it's still a good reminder for proper usage of commas with conjunctive adverbs.
