Using the right grammar and punctuation is vital to convey messages without any ambiguity or misunderstanding. If I said: “Let’s eat grandma” you might think I’m a bit cannibalistic, or that I don’t really like my grandma that much. But if I said: “Let’s eat, Grandma” there would be no doubt that I wanted to eat with my grandma at that particular moment in time. You see? No ambiguity. Plus it would have saved my grandma’s life- which, you know, she would be quite happy about.
