I think they found his oversized heart was a great bouyancy aid. Hence the role in baywatch.

He always swam with a bit of the Berlin wall, which he brought back after playing the world's biggest ever concert, in his trunks to give him ballast.

He played the worlds biggest concert confined by the capacity of his trunks? Is there nothing this man cannot do?

I'm afraid thats a brackets job. You'd never get away with commas....

08-06-2006, 16:28:51
Nah, commas are used to insert a sentence inside another sentence.

The insidious brackets are wrong (even though I use them a lot).

You cannot insert a sentence (subject and object) in a sentence with a different subject and object using commas!

08-06-2006, 16:30:55
You can. - FACT!

It's not. An appositive would have to be a noun phrase that describes/refines the noun phrase it follows.

eg. He always swam with a bit of the Berlin wall, a souvenir brought back after playing the world's biggest ever concert, in his trunks, to give him ballast.

Your phrase was parenthetical, though using commas in such a situation is permitted.

We were having fun with The Hoff and you bitches had to go and bring grammar into it.

sorry, but nerdiness trumps even the hoff.

Funko from your very site
"Quotation marks("") and parentheses(( )) are used to insert one sentence inside of another sentence, but this is not really sentence combination and will not be discussed here. "

Why? Cos they're scared it'll negate the silly ruloe about commas?

You're lucky we're not in Germany or I'd have to kill you for such blasphemy.

I want to see Hoff fail, followed by another bout of public drunkeness.
