What is wrong with the following sentence? It's time to eat Grandma.
It's time to eat, Grandma. There should be a comma before the name, "Grandma." Without the comma, "Grandma" is the direct object of the verb "to eat," meaning that it is time for you to eat your Grandma. By adding a comma, you separate "Grandma" from the independent clause. This clarifies that you are addressing your grandma instead of eating her.
