  2. Hi Paige, thanks for dropping by and now following me. In case, you’re kind of a grammar girl, you’ll find a lot of such comma misuses and other mistakes in my posts. That’s because I’m not a native speaker. Sorry for that 🙂
    This post was very interesting for me. It’s an example of a rule in English, that is way different from German: an itemization will never have a comma in front of the ‘and’. Also your second and third sample wont work in German.
    Fascinating.
