I have a basic question regarding commas, and I have not found the answer I was looking for.
So the rule of thumb is to never separate the verb from the subject or main subject should I say...but in speech for instance or a question.
- Are you ready, Coachella?
We separate -- is that mandatory to use the comma- why? For instance:
- Are you ready Steven?
- Are you ready, Steven?
- It's what she feared the most, death.
Is the comma needed here, and if you reverse it:
- "Death, it's what she feared most."
Why grammatically does the sentence not work without the comma.
What -term- do you use when you can switch the sentence around and it still works either way ?
