Using commas 2
Commas act as pauses and they can be used to separate independent statements which are linked by: for, and, nor, but, or, yet and so.
Now read these examples and consider how commas are used to separate different parts of the sentences:
Jenny said she would buy me the tickets, but she hasn't shown them to me at all.
I am buying a new car, but l won't pick it up for another month.
I am going to the party, so l don't expect to come home before midnight!
I have never read Shakespeare, nor has my friend Emma.
She picked the whole crate up in one go, for she is an athlete and l am not.
Would you like some cake, or would you prefer fruit?
