Common Comma Errors

August 5

Understand the current comma rules in business writing and where those rules are most often broken.

Commas are the most commonly used and misused punctuation mark, and it’s no wonder we are confused about commas. We see commas used differently from one document to the next. In this short but content-rich material, we look at some of the most common usage errors. Credibility is vital in today’s business communications; however, just one piece of punctuation used in error can undermine the message and even the credibility of an entire organization. Comma rules can seem vague and confusing which contributes to commas continuously show up where they should not and fail to appear where they should.
