Sentence: "I love cooking my family and my pets." Without punctuation clarification, this sentence could be interpreted as the person loving to cook their family and pets as ingredients , which is obviously not the intended meaning. "I love cooking, my family, and my pets." This use of commas shows that the person loves cooking separately from their affection for their family and pets. Using punctuation helps make the meaning clear and prevents misunderstandings. It guides readers to understand the intended message and improves communication.
