Placing of comma


a title given to the founder of Buddhism, Siddartha Gautama ( circa 563– circa 460 bc ) . Born a prince in what is now Nepal, he renounced wealth and family to become an ascetic, and after achieving enlightenment while meditating, taught all who came to learn from him.

Shouldn’t the highlighted comma be after “an” instead?



No, not after ‘an’. That wouldn’t work because it is the indefinite article before the noun. My advice would be to leave the comma out altogether.


There are three redundant spaces here. @Kohyoongliat Do you see them?


Torsten, I think one is short too.
(circa 563 – circa 460 BC).


Thanks, Torsten.

There should be no space next to the brackets and the full stop should be just next to the bracket.
