Interrupting a sentence with no punctuation needed

In this series on interruptions in sentences, we have looked at interruptions in parentheses, interruptions with dashes, and interruptions with commas. But it is also possible to interrupt a sentence with no punctuation around the interruption. You do this when the interruption is actually a crucial part of the sentence. In grammar terms, this is called “essential.” These interruptions are “essential” because they help define or identify the exact thing you are talking about. They restrict the discussion to the exact item you mean. Here is an example:

The small arrow on the Styles group title bar opens the Styles pane.


The phrase on the Styles group title bar interrupts between the subject arrow and the verb opens. There is no punctuation surrounding this interruption because it is essential to help the reader find the exact arrow you are talking about out of all the arrows that might exist on a typical computer screen.

The poet Robert Frost wrote “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.”


Here there are no commas around Frost’s name because his name is essential to the sentence. It identifies which poet you are talking about. Without his name, the reader would have to ask, “Which poet, out of all the poets in the world and throughout history, are you talking about?”

Notice that if you put his name first, there would be no question of who you were talking about, because his name clearly identifies him. In that case any further description, such as the words a 20th-century American poet, would be a nonessential interruption and require commas:

Robert Frost, a 20th-century American poet, wrote “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.”


Here are some additional examples of interruptions:

1. The book that is in the center of the coffee table is very important to me.


2. World Art: The Essential Illustrated History, which is on the coffee table, is my favorite art book.


In sentence 1, the interruption is essential to identifying the book out of all the books in the world. The essential information cannot be surrounded by commas.

In sentence 2 the book has already been fully identified before the interruption. The interruption merely adds additional description that is not needed for identifying the item. Commas are needed.

Andrew Lewis said...

Punctuation is must in every sentence to make sense and looks attractive. This is a need to accommodate the sentence in terms to punctuated. Sometime we may not understand the sentence or topic. That's why people hire

I was after a few lines of code where the server would automatically escape/filter POST data before inserting into database. It turns out that mysql_add_slashes() does the job but it causes more problems than anything and it is not advisable to use this function and it has been discontinued since PHP 6.0 - محسن ابراهیم زاده

With times moving ahead and with no relief available insight, it certainly doesn’t make sense for students to confine themselves into marginalized positions. They should instead make use of the foremost UK assignment writing service, which is provided by British Assignment Writing. This service has carved itself such a position in the industry, as they are thorough professionals.

This is a normal zombie game concept right off the outset, but what sets State of Survival apart from other zombie games is the narrative, not the scenario. The story is portrayed through a cast of colorful individuals. This game achieves the claustrophobic atmosphere in the same way as television shows on the subject, such as The Walking Dead, do. Furthermore, the plot focuses on the human psyche under duress as well as fighting zombies. Play State of Survival PC: The Joker Collaboration - Strategy Game
