Lesson 354

Mechanics - Punctuation - Commas

 

Use a comma to separate co-ordinate adjectives. Co-ordinate adjectives can be checked to see if a comma is necessary by placing and between them. They will sound smooth and correct with the and.

 

Examples: The warm, sunny day made everyone happy. (warm and sunny sounds smooth) You are a clever little girl. (clever and little doesn't sound smooth)

 

Instructions: Place commas where they are needed.

 

1. Today was not a clear sunny day.

 

2. Allison thought she was such a clever little girl.

 

3. Where did you buy that dashing red car?

 

4. They say that tomorrow will be a sunny warm day.

 

5. Your careless inconsiderate behavior could cause you serious problems.
