#3 Sentence Pattern: The Connective Pattern
What is a connective Sentence?
A connective sentence is also known as compound sentences, Connectives sentences connect two or more different ideas together in one sentence.
LETS TAKE AN ASSESSMENT
1. Go on SOCRATIVE
2. Go to room no. "sarilarp"
3. Put a thumbs up in the air when done with SOCRATIVE QUIZ.
EXAMPLES FROM THE TEXTBOOK
COMMAS
There are two different ways to make a connective sentence.
Using commas
OR
Using HEAVY connectives
Commas work the opposite way from connectives. The commas used in a connective pattern are used separate ideas of instead of linking them.
So how do we use commas in a connective pattern?
For this pattern the commas and connectives will always be used in pairs. If the commas or connectives were used alone in the connective sentence pattern the wouldn't give enough separation between the ideas.
The commas have to be before the connector word otherwise the comma would be used incorrectly.
EXAMPLES!
I have a cat but, I like dogs better.
I have a cat, but I like dogs better.
I grabbed the toothpaste tube, I squeezed the content on my toothbrush
I grabbed the toothpaste tube, and I squeezed the content on my toothbrush
HEAVY connectives
How are heavy connectives used?
BIBLIOGRAPHY:
Heavy connectives are used in the same way regular connectives are used. EXCEPT heavy connectives use a semicolon and a comma after the connective.
Here is an EXAMPLE:
Katie is a smart person; however, sometimes she thinks too literally.
Here are a list of HEAVY CONNECTIVES:
however

consequently

otherwise
nevertheless

therefore

besides
furthermore

moreover

in fact
