Hello.
My question is about the use of commas.

A: "You must come to my birthday party."
B: "I for surely will."

Should we put commas after 'I' and 'for surely' in the above sentence?
"I, for surely, will"
"I for surely will"
Which one would be correct?

Thanks in advance. :)

    Neither. Your sentence is incorrect regardless of punctuation.

    Try “I definitely will” (no comma).

    I often see native English speakers using that sentence in informal online chats. I've heard lots of Americans using that sentence.
    I wondered if there's a difference between "I sure will" and "I for surely will".
    "I sure will" is normal but "I for surely will" sounded odd to me.
    I thought it would be correct. :p
    Thank you, Elroy. :)
