Hello Ann and others,

Yes, I'd like to open up a discussion about the non-uses of commas which confuse and change the meaning of sentences.

Actually, I meant to say "Yes, I'd like to open up a discussion about the non-uses of commas, which confuse and changes the meaning of sentences."

Melanie and all -


Now, would you like to open up a discussion on the non-use of commas and apostrophes? As a card carrying member of the Apostrophe Protection Society I am most unhappy about people omitting apostrophes. I rue the day other grammatical devices, trying desperately to stave off confusion in the written word, have been bludgeoned to death via texts, email (tho? not so much), etc. (

I wonder what Shakespeare?s experience was as he added 1,700 words to the English vocabulary?
