This question already has an answer here:
I read an article about using commas for parenthesis and I want to make sure that I understand it properly. So can you guys tell me if I am using commas correctly in the following examples?
My Mum, Jane Smith, is a nice lady.
Jake Mole, who is from Manchester, was arrested last night.
My daughter, Louise, is very helpful. ( Would this change to no commas if you had more than one daughter? For example if you had three daughters, how would you know which one is being talked about? )
My dog, which has one eye, is my best friend.
Those are my examples. So, am I using them right? If not, if you guys could explain to me how to properly use commas as parenthesis then that would be great. :)
