|Commas are used to separate who said what in a quotation. When you write a conversation between two or more people, you are writing a dialogue. Use a comma before and after the speaker's words to separate them from the rest of the sentence.|
The teacher said, "The homework is due tomorrow."
"I love to go to school," said Bob.
Directions: Read the sentence and rewrite it with a comma to separate the speaker's words from the rest of the sentence. (Hint: To ensure correct grading by the computer, copy the question into the answer box and make only the necessary changes.)
Write your own dialogue and make sure to use the commas properly. As a homework, read a book that contains a dialogue -- write the dialogue on a sheet of paper and note the use of commas.
