Grammar - Using commas 2

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?
