Comma before "and" and after "and" --Any difference in the meaning?
The English language has a long tradition of creating new useful words out of others, and nominalizations are no different.
Please explain the difference.
Generally, commas do not fall after "and".
A tricky situation, however, occurs when your second independent clause starts with a phrase that is normally surrounded by commas. Do you say blah blah, and, interjection, blah blah blah? The consensus of the style manuals is no. You omit the comma after and: blah blah, and interjection, blah blah blah.
