When to Use Commas After Introductory Clauses
A comma is a punctuation mark that can be used to punctuate introductory clauses. When a dependent clause is at the beginning of a complex sentence, a comma must be placed after the dependent clause.
Examples of Commas After Introductory Clauses
Some examples of commas after introductory clauses would be the following:
- Although I am usually a fan of her music, her newest album was a huge disappointment.
- Because we are out of eggs, we have to use applesauce to moisten our brownie batter.
- Until we get back, your older sister is in charge.
- Whenever Lora goes to the beach, she always forgets to bring sunscreen.
