    A comma after a conjunction.

    Does a comma need to be put in a sentence after one word follows a conjuction?

    For example:

    Blah blah blah, but intact.

    Do you get what I mean?

    or just a complete sentence after a conjunction.

    Use a comma + a little conjunction (and, but, for, nor, yet, or, so) to connect two independent clauses, as in "He hit the ball well, but he ran toward third base."

    e.g.

    John waited for the train, but the train was late.
