Product Description

This 12-slide PPT shows how missing or misplaced commas can be ambiguous or even costly and harmful. Although not a complete treatment of comma use, it shows and explains the serial/Oxford comma, the implied meaning of commas, and some common (sometimes funny) failures of comma use. Some of the blinking commas only animate when in PPT “show” mode. This PowerPoint includes the animated GIF “Comma Conspiracy Construes the US 2nd Amendment” which is available separately (for free), see Comma Conspiracy.
