Grammar
 Rule #4b- Use commas with interrupters. Use commas
to set off nonessential clauses and nonessential
participial phrases.
 A nonessential clause or participial phrase is one
containing information that isn’t needed to understand
the main idea of the sentence.
Examples
 My cousin, walking home one day, found a large
snapping turtle.
 That scarf, which is real silk, was made in India.
 Don’t get these confused with essential phrases or
clauses- one that cannot be left out without changing
the meaning of the sentence. Essential clauses and
phrases are not set off by commas.
 Example: A book written by Maxine Hong Kingston is
about growing up as a Chinese American woman.
Vocabulary
 Grab your clickers.
 Write your answers on a sheet of paper and then put
