The article, http://theslot.blogspot.com/, discusses the serial comma, aka the Oxford comma. For our non-grammar enthusiasts, the serial comma is the one that comes right before the coordinating conjunction in a series, e.g., periods, commas, and question marks. I get confused about the serial comma every time I write. As a journalism major, I omit the serial comma when writing. However, as a technical writer, copy editor or online writer, I usually add the serial comma.
QUESTION OF THE DAY: Do you add or omit the serial comma when writing? Why? In a series, do you include or exclude the serial comma? Do you think the Associated Press has an adequate solution?
