Atomium Escalator: Travelling through hyperspace in the Belgian tourist attraction
As a copywriter I'm confronted by the Oxford Comma question on a daily basis, but when it comes to the usage of this controversial piece of punctuation I definitely fall into the pro camp. However, I've never considered where it came from or the etymology of the phrase "Oxford Comma". The good folks at Vox have done their research though and in one of their recently uploaded (and very nicely produced) videos explain the Oxford Comma origin story.
My case for using the old Ox Com is that even if it isn't completely necessary all the time the assurance of 100% clarity when listing things is always better than anything less. The video above certainly isn't going to settle any debates but it will at least add some interesting new content to discussions about this copywriters' bane.
