    Is't ( and ) or ( comma ) ?

    As I have been learned .when you want to talk about many things gradually we donít use ( and ) after each one but we use it before the last one I mean for example ( George , lim , ali ,and me went to paris ) but I read this which confused me a little bit ---( that involves produsing and receiving and processing information ) would you please tell me why the writer used ( and ) after each word ?

    thanks in advance

    EX: George, Lim, Ali, and me ...

    Each comma represents "and":

    EX: George and Lim and Ali and me ...

    There isn't a rule that states that you have to replace "and" with a comma. It's just more economical that way.

    Leaving "and" in makes the connection between each noun wider (in space) and longer (in time), and that has the effect of placing individual emphasis on each noun.
