usage of the colon in a sentence.
1a. I just bought CDs by Regina Spektor, John Legend, and Prince.
1b. I just bought: CDs by Regina Spektoe, John Legend, and Prince.

I believe the second one is incorrect because the first one looks and sounds more correct. Am I right?

    You're right, Dorothy. 1a. is correct.

  • grammar -

    usage of the comma.
    1a. Bob enjoys playing football, and Jim enjoys playing hockey.

    1b. Bob enjoys playing football and Jim enjoys playing hockey.

    I think these are 2 independent sentences and can be separated by a comma. The and just joins them together, separated by the comma.

  • grammar -

    Right! :-) You're doing great!
