I am so small, and sometimes I'm missed.
I get misplaced, misused, and help you when you list.
People usually pause when they see me,
So can you tell me what I could be?

Very cute! Your hint totally gave it away for me. Very helpful!

At first I thought of the word "is". But I have to agree with Riki, the hint gave it away. Hope I used this comma correctly.

hehe cute, I missed the poor little comma
avonmaAus*
Apr 18, 2009

I finally came up with a "period," but then I realized it must be a "comma." You "pause" there and usually take a breath; and you are more likely to miss a comma than a period. Good one! Thanks!

a comma? I think thats pretty cute. ^_^

Nicely done.

Without the hint, I think you could reasonably make a case for a colon or semi-colon, as well. I love the idea of grammatical teasers; it would be nice to tighten up the clues a bit to rule out all but one answer.

You made me think with this one.

Apr 18, 2012

Very nice! It was the pause that gave it to me.

I needed the hint to eliminate 'colon', which precedes a list. Since a colon wasn't present, I said, "A-ha! Commas are WITHIN a horizontal list!" Got it!

Apr 18, 2012

A clever one ! Got within 10 sec. started w/ "period " then comma gave me PAUSE. I agree exactly with " babe " prior comment..

Apr 18, 2012

I pretty much agree with what mamalemma said above and include a dash (-) too. It is better to eliminate a myriad of equally good answers to any puzzle. As is, this one's just okay.

"Help you when you list" was the clue that cinched it that this was a comma we were talking about -- you separate items in a list most often by commas. And if you were ever an English teacher, the parts about "missed" and "misplaced, misused" were instant clues -- missing commas are one of the most common mistakes made by young writers.

I thought 'mouse' first, then I got it!
