1. Oxford comma. Always.
2. I would say based on the list in Question 1, the Oxford comma.
You’re two for two!
I researched this a couple of months ago since I was getting very tired of being criticized for using a comma before the “and” or “or” that preceded the final item in a list. Despite the various options, however, I will continue to use either the Oxford Comma, the Serial Comma, or the comma after the penultimate item.
Precisely, exactly, and absolutely.
We have another winner!
First, I have to look up penultimate
It should be your second to last task.
I, use, the, Captain, Kirk, comma.
As, everyone, should.
In reply to your inquiries, 1) I generally employ the Oxford comma, 2) you used the Oxford comma, and 3) thanks for asking.
Had to get that comma in somehow 🙂
How very erudite, learned and Oxfordian.
Gasp! You left out The Comma. My eyes hurt!
I COMMAnly use the comma as needed and as COMMANly applied by standard rules from College. Thus we COMMAmerate with the correct usage.
The proper COMMAnd of its use seems to be less COMMAn.
Who COMMAplains anyway?
Your mastery of the COMMA is COMMAndable.
