What is a comma?
A comma is a punctuation mark used to separate items within a list or to separate some phrases and clauses within a sentence.

How do they provide clarity?

Commas can be used to avoid confusion when writing.

For example:
Let’s eat grandma! (Grandma may be eaten for dinner!)
Let’s eat, grandma! (We are inviting our grandma to eat with us)
