The Rule

Use commas to set off elements that interrupt a

sentence

Appositives and appositive phrases are usually set off by commas

Sound simple enough, right?Slide3

Appositive phrase =

an

appositive and its modifiers

Appositives

Appositive

= a noun or pronoun placed beside another noun or pronoun to identify or explain

it and are set off by commas.These sort of look like non-restrictive (non-essential) phrasesExample: Paul Szep, the political cartoonist, has won several Pulitzer Prizes.

Restricted Appositives

Restrictive appositive

= an appositive that is so closely related to the word or words near it that it really shouldn’t be set off by commas

.

These sort of look like restrictive (essential)

phrases
