Grammar - Using commas 1

Using commas 1

Commas are used to separate words, phrases or clauses. They are used to
indicate a short pause.

Read the following two examples aloud. How have commas changed the way
you read?

"Clean your room now" mum commanded from the family room. Now I was really
in for it. Not only my room but I also had to attack the grass out the back
the garage junk pile the dirty car the dirty dog wash my kid brother and do
homework. I'm good I thought but not that good.
