    parallel comparison

    Can I rewrite the sentences as follows?

    (original sentence) The rules for using comma in English are almost the same as the rules for using comma in Korean.

    --------------------> ............................ are almost the same as the ones in Korean.

    .................................................. ..............are almost the same as in Korean.

    Re: parallel comparison

    Where did your original sentence come from, bosun?

    'comma' should be commas' both times.

    Re: parallel comparison

    Or you could use "the rules for using a/the comma". I prefer "commas" though.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It's from TOP 20 Great Grammar. Still I have a question. What do you think about my sentence? Is it grammatically correct?
