One of my first and favorite language books that covers punctuation is “Grammatically Correct,” by Anne Stilman. It includes 26 pages of how to use the comma correctly! I have the first edition, but the second edition is available. This book could have come in handy in regard to this story about a missing comma that resulted in a $5 million settlement!
Want a copy of the book? If not, you can rely on me to make sure you follow the rules and avoid these kinds of communication problems.
I love when my friends alert me to fun grammar-based stories like this (keep them coming)! Although this one probably wasn't any fun for the defendants.
Grammar is important and can be tricky. And skimping on editing can be costly.
