Context: "And you, you little liar, if you..."

Should there be a comma between "you" and "little liar" and if no, why?

1 Answer 1


No, there should not be a comma there (as in "And you, you, little liar, if you..")

You little liar is a vocative noun phrase all by itself. There is neither a need for a comma or any meaningful place for one in a phrase like You + noun.
