Where are all the commas?
By Theodore M. Bernstein
Where have the commas gone? Commas
are cute little creatures, but sometimes
they can wreak havoc by being misplaced
or omitted. Dr. S. Mouchly Small of Buf
falo, N.Y., sends along a clipping of a news
paper article that demonstrates the point.
One sentence read: "Iran said the Unit
ed States still owes it $365 million for
debts incurred during World War II." It
seems to make sense: The United States
owes Iran a lot of money.
The only trouble is that commas should
have been placed after "Iran" and after
"the United States.
The United States was saying that Iran
owed it that money. The error amounted
to $730 million. If the sentence hadn't
been written so clumsily, the error would
have been avoided.
Word oddities. Far back an item in this
column contained an opinion that the most
musical words in the English language were
That stirred something in the memory
of Joseph L. Velten, an English teacher in
Warminster, Pa., and he went on a hunt for
a clipping of a newspaper column publi
shed some 10 years earlier. He found it and
has sent it this way.
"Some 30 years ago lexicographer Wil
fred J. Funk drew up this list: dawn, hush,
lullaby, murmuring, tranquil, mist, lumin
ous, chimes, golden and melody.
"He was deluged with complaints.
Dorothy Parker found "hush" an ugly
word and both she and Hendrik Willem
Van Loom shared agreement on, of all
words, cellar door as the most beautiful in
the language. 1975 Thodar M. Bmtin
