PHP How to remove part of a pattern with regular expression


$string = '"name","first name,","mothers name","maiden name,"';
$newstring = preg_replace('/\w\,\"/','"',$string);

How to remove the stray commas (in bold) from inside the quotation marks and leave the delimiters?
The above code also removes the last character
$newstring = "name","first nam","mothers name","maiden nam"
Try this:

$newString = preg_replace('/(\w)(\,)(\")/', '$1$3', $string);

This uses 3 parts, the word character, the comma and the double quote, which are then replaced with the first and third match, thus excluding the comma.
