Using Commas


The "Hey You!" Comma

The "hey, you!" comma is more formally called the direct address comma. It is used in pairs to enclose interjections used to get the reader's attention-usually the person's name.

Examples:

• Thank you, Raul, for your time and effort on this project.
• Stacy, can I take half a day off today?
• I can understand your wanting the job, Kevin.
