Margie Holds Court
Margie Holds Court
This NEW class starts this Saturday! Do you always wonder about the comma after a prepositional phrase at the beginning of a sentence? Or what if the phrase is after an “and” in a compound sentence? Is there a comma? Are there two?

We will define what those elements are that come out in the front of the sentence. Then we will work on punctuating them. Ah, for the “old” days when ALL introductory elements took commas. But we have to look at the rules that now govern.
