This question already has an answer here:
I need help with the following sentence that I've encountered on the Wikipedia page titled "Literal and figurative language."
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry...
Another example (from engVid Youtube video):
I have one idea, I have another idea, but they are very much connected.
Can somebody please support or disprove such an exception to the comma splice rule (when you list ideas or something like that).
PS If you say that "his nose like a cherry" is not an independent clause, then if the first sentence were to be written as follows:
His cheeks were like roses, his nose was like a cherry...
would the comma still be acceptable/correct?
