    Puncutation usage

    Hello All,

    Is it ok to use a comma before a name.

    Ex:

    1. Please come here, John.

    2. I am glad to hear that, John.

    Thank you,
    Titus Andrews

    Good morning, Mr. Andrews.

    (1) You are correct: "good" writing requires a comma to set

    off a name.

    John, come here.

    Come here, John.

    Oh, John, you must be kidding.

    I love you, John.

    By the way, John, did you see that movie on TV last night?

    Have a nice day, Mr. Andrews.
