Re: The English language includes support for lists
"cheese and onion, and salt and vinegar flavours"
Yep, the comma pre "and", and in a following sentence of similiar construction
"barbecue sauce and prawn cocktail"
I know its still gramatically correct but why? Is it a grammar joke?
How do you interpret that comma, does it hint at an intonation?
Has the comma been dropped from the second iteration of the sentence construction because of the existence of the first?
I hated English.
