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 on 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.
