The Comma Conundrum among Higher Education Administrative Staff: A Case Study of Kumasi Technical University, Ghana

Isaac Addai, Charles Obeng Sarpong


Abstract: Comma, a punctuation mark which is used to separate parts of a sentence or items in a list (COBUILD Advanced English Dictionary, 2014) could be legally costly for an individual, an institution or a contract proposal. An inquiry into the importance of the placement of a comma in a sentence by public university Administrators from the Kumasi Technical University who communicate mostly in writing indicate that 52 percent of the Administrators do not know that a wrongfully placed comma in a sentence can be very costly. The paper recommends that regular workshops to the public university Administrators be organised to bring to their attention how costly wrongly placed comma in a sentence can do to their jobs and employers.
