Someone Make Up Their Mind
"No wonder feelings run high about the comma. When it comes to improving the clarity of a sentence, you can nearly always argue that one should go in; you can nearly always argue that one should come out." (Truss 80)
I remember in English classes how frustrated I used to get when one teacher would mark certain punctuation useage wrong while another believed the useage was okay. It was hard to try to determine, especially with the comma, what use was correct or incorrect because each teacher had a different opinion. Although after reading this sections on commas I feel I understand the correct useage a little more clearly, I still believe that I will have many more situations where the correct useage is going to be debatable.
