Pauses used as punctuation can confuse the listener and should be avoided. True or False

    i think this might be false because you use commas to represent a pause in the sentence...so... but im not sure though. it's my best educated guess

    Actually, I think it's True...because I've never heard anyone say anything but a comma used for a pause in a story or anything else. Just a educated guess as well. @kaylaxscott23

    False, because it lets the reader/listener catch their breath and think about what they have already read.

    Im afraid Chelsea is correct, commas are always the correct way to indicate your readers or even in extreme cases although it is not grammatically correct people use "..." to indicate a longer pause.Also the memorandum and innuendo show that "a correct and appropriate use of punctuation can captivate an attenuate and may also be used to give a suspenseful silence". I conclude : )
