Having trouble on when to use a comma and when to use a semicolan with transitional phrases. For example, in the sentence, "The trees could not protect us from the thunderstorm therefore we had to go in to keep from getting wet." Would it be punctuated as thunderstorm, therefore, we or would it be tunderstorm; therefore, we

    Don't put a comma after "therefore."

  • Language Arts -
