    Commas are crucial. There's a huge difference between
    Let's eat, Grandma.
    and
    Let's eat Grandma.

    You should be careful about inserting too many commas, as well. There was a book about grammar, titled "Eats, Shoots, and Leaves." The title is a reference to a sentence written about a koala; "The koala eats shoots and leaves."

    Apparently some misguided person inserted extra commas to make this "The koala eats, shoots, and leaves."

    Big difference.

    Or
    "Fruit, plants tropical and semi-tropical for the purpose of propagation or cultivation."
    vs
    "Fruit plants, tropical and semi-tropical for the purpose of propagation or cultivation."
