An issue that is near and dear to my heart. I care oh-so-much about the Oxford (aka serial) comma. I am 100%, absolutely, without a doubt in favor of the comma. (The blog post title is a cleaned-up reference to the Vampire Weekend song “Oxford Comma,” which does indeed use not-suitable-for-work language, but which I adore).
This poster (created for OnlineSchools.com), without not-suitable-for-work language, explains the Oxford Comma debate. I have to say, I was greatly distressed to hear about the Oxford University PR team’s decision on the comma. Change is bad, people!
