Why Everyone Should Use The Oxford Comma

The Oxford CommaWhat is the Oxford comma?

Just so you know, the Oxford comma is basically the most important punctuation mark of all time.

The Oxford comma, otherwise known as the serial comma, has come under debate in recent years.

This is how Oxford Dictionary explaines the Oxford comma:

“The ‘Oxford comma‘ is an optional comma before the word ‘and’ at the end of a list:

We sell books, videos, and magazines.

It’s known as the Oxford comma because it wastraditionally used by printers, readers, and editors at Oxford University Press.  Not all writers and publishersuse it, but it can clarify the meaning of a sentence when the items in a list are not single words:

These items are available in black and white, red and yellow, and blue and green.”
