I don't know about y'all, but I am an avid supporter of the Oxford/Serial comma (not joking). If you've been following the endless debate on the controversial little comma, you'd know I'm not the only one. Fun Fact: The Oxford comma got its name from the Oxford University Press, where it has been traditionally used by editors. If you have no idea what I am talking about, the Oxford comma is the comma that comes before the conjunction in a series of words. Basically, it’s used to prevent any confusion or ambiguity.
Here’s an example:
“Among those interviewed were his two friends, Jane and John.”
In this sentence, it could be taken that Jane and John were his two friends.
“Among those interviewed were his two friends, Jane, and John.”
Now the Oxford Comma has clarified that his two friends were interviewed, as well as Jane and John.
DEBATE WON with that example. I'm being biased and not writing the argument on the other side of the debate because, frankly, it doesn't make sense to me. By the way, MLA likes the Oxford comma too.
Side Note: You should listen to Oxford Comma by Vampire Weekend. I really don’t know what it is about or what it has to do with the Oxford comma, but it’s a pretty great song.
