2.16 Punctuation: Commas in Series and Introductions

Rules for using commas in series and in introductions:
  1. A comma follows each item in a series except the last one.
    Examples:
    San Fransisco, Florida, New York, and Chicago are well known cities in America.

  2. A comma follows an introductory word or a phrase to separate it from the rest of the sentence.
    Examples:
    Yes, Ron is going to Detroit.
    Before the show, people waited in lines.

  3. A comma is used to show a pause you would make if you were saying the sentence aloud.
    Examples:
    We planned for a boat ride in the river, but had to cancel it because of the weather.
