“Yes” and “No” and Their Friends

Margie Wakeman Wells The Comma 2 Comments

When yes and no or any of the words that indicate affirmative or negative are in the middle of a sentence, they are surrounded by commas.

…And, yes, he did accompany us the first time.
…He wasn’t there, no, when I needed him.
…She stopped by to give us the news; but, no, she didn’t add any details.

Happy punctuating!
