The Oxford Comma
Do we feel strongly about the Oxford comma? Yes, yes, and yes. Here are some of my favorite responses:
- What are we animals? Of course the Oxford comma.
- Hell, YES!!! 🙂
- In books, yes. In magazines and newspapers, no. In any place where its use can clarify meaning, yes.
- Yes unless you are referring to that song.
- Absolutely, positively, and definitively.
- Yes, dammit!
- Absolutely, unequivocally, indubitably YES!
- No, except when it makes sense to help clarify, differentiate, or otherwise set apart.
The Oxford comma:
YES – 81%
NO – 19%
