    comma/who says hello

    Which is correct:

    1-I talked to Pete yesterday, who says "hello".

    2-I talked to Pete yesterday who says "hello".

    Since the clause is non-restrictive, one might argue that the comma is needed. But the clause comes after an adverb, so I don't know whether to use the comma or not.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: comma/who says hello

    We wouldn't say that. We'd say, "I talked to Pete yesterday; he says hello (or "hello")"
