The Serial Comma: Blood or Brains
Trawling around Worpress, found this about the Oxford Comma – I am a supporter
If you aren’t familiar with what a serial comma is, then I’ll give you a quick overview:
1) I had eggs, toast, and orange juice for breakfast.
2) I had eggs, toast and orange juice for breakfast.
The first uses a serial comma. The second does not. The serial comma is the second comma in the first example and it is used to separate and distinguish different items in a list. I use them in my own writing, but a colleague of mine, who I collaborate with on almost every writing project that we undertake, does not. We both have our reasons, and although I regard her opinions highly, I like to think that I am correct (insert stubbornness here).
