I often have occasion to list many phrases separated by commas. Then if I want to add a phrase which has a comma within it, I separate that phrase from the others by placing a semicolon on either side of it and leaving the other commas intact. I think this looks more readable than separating the entire list with semicolons. What does a grammar expert think of this practice?
