When to Use Commas?

Usually, commas are used to separate a list or a group of things; whenever someone needs to separate two or more entities, they use commas. Commas may also serve as conjunction and can be placed when a sentence is becoming long and needs to be split into two separate clauses. Commas are one of the most commonly used punctuation marks and serve multiple purposes in English grammar. Commas are also used to put a subordinate clause in the middle of a sentence. When we start that clause, we put a comma and we put one at the end of it.
