Sentence adverb

It's a sentence adverb. They all get commas.

I voted for the comma, but don't mind too much if they are left out. They should, however, get the comma they deserve. ;-)

I thik, that comma is required. When I was in school, my Russian teacher used to tell me that I like commas too much, because I put them where it's necessary and not.

In the example, the adverb modifies the whole sentence, so it should be separated by a comma.;-)

So do I as well, but one must use comma only when it's required indeed, otherwise it's going to be such a mess.
Now tell me, whether all the commas in these clauses are required indeed?
:wink:

Well, in the first sentence it should be a semicolon instead of a comma.

Sentence adverbs, which give the speaker's opinion, are usually separated by commas from the rest of the sentence. ;-)

if we have any sentence that have adv., we must put comma after the adv.
