A slight pause may be indicated by a comma or a semicolon. The time of a verb action is indicated by its tense.


The comma or semicolon indicate a short break in an otherwise continuing thought or expression. They may be used to create pauses in a sentence.

The tense (past, present, future, and all the variations) indicate the time context of the action.
