    Hello! Can you still help me, please? In such a sentence:
    I'm fine and I hope you (,) too!
    Is the comma after "you" necessary?
    Thanks a lot in advance!

    The second part isn't correct. It should be "I'm fine and I hope you are(,) too".

    I think a comma would make sense there though it could also be said without a pause after "are".

    Hi marcogaiotto.

    The sentence, as written, is missing a verb.

    I'd suggest "I'm fine and I hope you are, too!". In this case the comma is necessary.

    Yes, a comma is required in that position. But you are missing a word in your sentence. It's not a complete sentence.

    Many thanks to all of you! But can't my option be considered as a shortened form: I hope (that) you (are fine), too! ? Thanks a lot!

    If you remove the verb, you need to reverse the order.
    "You too, I hope!" Again, the comma is necessary.

    I'm a bit astonished!:confused: I was conviced my sentence was correct, my doubt was about the comma...As I am not a native, my sentence sounds so natural to me...to me but not to you!!:D:D:D Thanks a lot!
