Absolutley. "Hanged" ONLY applies to execution by hanging. (I first learned that in a spelling/grammar book; "Mind the Gaffe")

Whoops! You're quite correct - no politics. Naughty boy! I shall refrain hereafter.

I once saw a headline in a local paper that said: "Electrocuted man dies".

And for some reason, we still have the second comma in the title. Mind you the title says nothing about punctuation so...




If words add meaning to expression then write on!

Isn't the rule that you can only leave out the comma before the and only if your list comprises 2 elements? ie we have 3 so the comma after capitalization is correct....

They are serial commas. Without the second comma, it would suggest that spelling was comprised of capitalization and grammar.

I don't think so. The comma is redundant regardless of the number of subjects. I have never used a comma in that location and haven't been corrected on it.

Edit: I just checked with punctation check and it appears my assumptions are correct.

2nd edit: I was answering Dave's question but I guess it still applies.
