Certain very modern writers omit the commas when quotation marks are used, thus: ‘There remains’ he said ‘nothing to do’. But we cannot go fully into this question until we deal with the quotation mark. § 20: Recapitulatory The use of the comma in its simplest aspects—that is, in relation only to itself and the period—may be summarized thus: In apostrophe and appeal: You, sir, will help. O Caesar, hearken to my plea. In dates: Sunday, June 30, 1952, was a very hot day. Sunday, 30 June 1952, was… Avoid: Sunday, 30 June, 1952, was… for the comma after ‘June’ is unnecessary.
