We dream in our waking moments, and walk in our sleep.
Why is there a comma after "moment"?
I see this commas usage very often. (This sentence was written by Nathaniel Hawthorne in The Scarlett Letter.) Even though there are only 2 items in this list, people seem to include a comma if a prepositional phrase is used with the first predicate.
Is this grammatically correct?
Funny thing is that I think the sentence sounds better without the comma. The comma puts an unnecessary break.
