4 To separate two independent clauses joined together by a coordinating conjunction (aka FANBOYS) I went to New York this past week with my best friend, and we saw our favorite Broadway show.

5 Introduce or Interrupt Quotations The author foreshadowed in his novel, the four friends had no clue they were heading for disaster. And Hey guys, Jimmy asked, did we bring our life jackets?

6 To Separate a Statement From a Question I can do this, can I not?

7 To Separate Contrasting Parts of a Sentence Today is my friends birthday, not mine.

8 Beginning a Sentence With Introductory Words Well, I guess I was wrong after all; I can do this!

9 Surrounding Transitional Words When used as Interrupters Because I slept in this morning, consequently, I wasnt able to turn in my homework.

10 After Introductory Words The dog in that neighborhood really annoys me. For instance, last week it was barking at me while I was trying to deliver mail to the Garcias house!
