Learn from the Comma Queen


This is the début of Comma Queen, the New Yorker’s series on language in all its facets: grammar, syntax, vocabulary, spelling, usage, and punctuation.

In this episode, Mary Norris talks about commas.

Norris also has a book, Between You and Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen, “The most irreverent and helpful book on language since the #1 New York Times bestseller Eats, Shoots & Leaves.”
