Homework and Class Work for ENG 100B Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012 1st Pd: Brooke Ratliff 2nd Pd: Sebastian Taylor INDEPENDENT WORK: Commas Copy Rule 2 and any information that you need to fully understand the concept onto your notes. RULE 2 : Use commas to separate two or more adjectives that modify the same noun. EXAMPLE Lana is an intelligent, responsible, sensitive director. NOTE A comma is unnecessary before a modifier so closely associated with the noun that the two words are thought of as a single concept. EXAMPLE She is an intelligent, sensitive young woman. To determine whether two adjectives modify the noun equally, substitute and for the possible comma: intelligent (and) sensitive young woman. If this can be done, a comma is necessary. Also, if the order of the adjectives can be reversed, a comma is needed: She is a sensitive, intelligent young woman. CLASSWORK: 1.
