Commas in conventional uses


Use commas to separate items in dates and addresses

  • Bill Cosby was born on July 12, 1937, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

  • Saturday, May 10, will be the day of the soccer playoff.

  • My aunt has lived at 41 Jefferson Street, Northfield, Minnesota, since 1998.


  • **A comma separates the last item in a date or in an address from the words that follow it. However, a comma does not separate a month from a day (July 12) or a house number from a street name (41 Jefferson Street).

  • **No punctuation is used between the state abbreviation and the ZIP code
