Comma After Conjunction in Introductory Clause



Grammarly Handbook by Grammarly
Found at: http://www.grammarly.com/handbook/punctuation/comma/9/comma-after-conjunction-in-introductory-clause/


Introductory clauses frequently begin with a conjunction (although, since, when, if, etc.) There should be no comma after the conjunction in the introductory clause.


  • Because, it was going to rain, we cancelled the picnic.
The comma after because should be removed; the comma after rain is properly used as it separates the introductory clause from the independent clause.

  • After, flunking her Victorian Literature class, Martha decided to do the assigned reading.
  • When and if, it gets delivered, please bring the package into my office immediately.
  • So, that the water didn’t get in, we attached rubber seals around the windows.

Yes, thanks for explaining that. I am guilty of using commas after conjunctions but now understand that it is incorrect.
