Hello everyone,


Does Thus have a comma ahead?

Many companies have adopted automatic machines so as to enhance their production with accuracy. Thus, numerous employees have lost their jobs.

Do you mean 'Does "thus" have a comma after it?'

Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't, depending on the context.

Does ahead mean after it? :(
If it meant anything in that context it would mean 'before it', but most people in that context would use 'before'.
