Do Commas Matter? Consider the story about my friends were heir to Uncle Josef's estate. Well, Josef wasn't really anyone's uncle, but that's what everyone called him. Uncle Josef's Last Will and testament read, qI leave my entire estate to my dear friends Robert, Rosie, Charley and Sophie.q The problem? Robert and Rosie filed a lawsuit staring that Charley and Sophie together were due a third of Uncle Josef's estate. Why? Uncle Josef hadn't placed a comma between Charley and Sophie. The judge agreed. Anyone who ever know uncle Josef has been careful about their pauses ever since. qAt last!
