grammarly falsely complains about comma usage, this should be fixed.



Review this sentence for comma use.

Ensure there is a comma between direct quotes and the attributive tag.

The attributive tag, (“said”), should be separated from the quote by a comma; consider inserting one.

See example:

"You're right," said Vic, "I'm ready to sit down for awhile."

Couldn't a period also be used?  And shouldn't "awhile" be two words?


"You're right," said Vic.  "I'm ready to sit down for a while."
