    Re: How can I use punctuation correctly?

    Hello Than, and welcome to Using English.

    I must disagree that punctuation is the most important part.

    Yes, you can create confusion when you do not punctuate correctly. But often, punctuation is a matter of style, not grammar. There are many times when the writer can choose how to punctuate.

    I like the online writing lab from Purdue: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/section/1/6/
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
