Video: commas – rule 2


Narration:

The second rule for using a comma is to mark an introductory phrase that is not part of the main sentence. For example, if the main sentence is Many graduates have difficulty obtaining a job, we could add the introductory phrase After leaving university – comma – many graduates have difficulty obtaining a job. If we add the extra information after the main sentence, we do not need the comma, although this is not considered as academic.
