    [To fivejedjon] Many speakers of BrE, particularly those under the age of 40

    1. Many speakers of BrE, particularly those under the age of 40 would say was here.

    Is this sentence correct without a comma after 40?

    Can I employ you as proofreader for that site? There should be a comma after '40'. There should also be inverted commas round 'was'.
