    Smile Is it necessary to put comma after the word "currently"

    Hi,

    I have one doubt.

    Is it necessary to put punctuation mark comma (,) after the word Currently?

    For example,
    Currently, I am working.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    Heather,


    (1) You have asked an excellent question.

    (2) Remember that I am not a teacher.

    (3) My answer is YES.

    (4) I believe most writing experts suggest a comma when an adverb

    introduces a sentence. Notice the natural pause in your voice:

    Tom: I am studying at the university. What are you doing?

    Martha: Currently, I am working. But I hope to enter the university

    next year.



    (5) You probably know that if the adverb comes in any other

    position, a comma is not usually used:

    I am currently working.

    I am working currently.

    (Notice that I could have written: Probably, [comma] you know ....)


    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    P.S. "Currently" means "at the present time." I think that

    95% of writing teachers would require a comma in:

    At the present time, I am working.
