One of my co-workers asked me to help him proofread/edit his paper for his English class. I agreed and started looking it over on my lunch today. He had already told me he doesn't like English because he can't seem to write out his thoughts and have it make sense. I wasn't too sure what I would be in for when I looked at his paper. The idea of it is actually pretty good. He had to use the movie Lethal Weapon to describe the Beauty and the Beast complex, which I think is very well done (and for some reason made me want to watch Lethal Weapon and Beauty and the Beast). HOWEVER…… he likes commas. A LOT of commas. He uses a comma in place of a period because he is afraid that his teacher won't realize his thought continues (his words not mine). :crosseyed He also has TWO full pages of quoted material. Again all of this is separated by commas. There is one period in the entire first massive paragraph. I feel like I'm not explaining things correctly. I've tried to explain the commas, the use of and (he uses that a lot also), and the two pages of quoted material to explain two sentences is probably not necessary. I know he has a disability, etc (which I won't get into). I just don't want to make him feel like he isn't doing it right (because he is doing the assignment his professor gave him), it's just the use of commas and lack of periods… ACK! Is there anyway I could explain it to him better? :help: :sorry:if what I said at the end made no sense. I was trying to make it, make sense.
