The Ninja Owl A sentence fragment is an INCOMPLETE thought. Example: "if you want to go with me" Our Sources!
http://www.myenglishteacher.net/runonsentences.html Subject? Yes
Verb? Yes

How is it an
Incomplete thought?? The very first word, "If" That word, along with: Because, After, When, Since, are all Subordinators, or subordinating conjunctions. Hoot Hoot! Subordinators try to do three things... 1. Join two sentences together
2. Make one sentence a dependent clause
3. Indicate a logical relationship What are the different types of subordinators? Well here's a list: Cause / Effect: because, since, so that
Comparison / Contrast: although, even though, though, whereas, while
Place & Manner: how, however, where, wherever
Possibility / Conditions: if, whether, unless
Relation: that, which, who
Time: after, as, before, since, when, whenever, while, until Complete sentences don't normally start with a subordinating conjunction. Are there correct ways to use sentence fragments? YES! Fragments can be used to draw attention to a certain statement, as long as that technique isn't overused. They can also be used to show emotion. Hey! Go Eagles! -Which cause her to slow down in the race.
-Where the players meet. There are exceptions! Since she was late, she had to do 50 up-downs On to Run-ons! A run-on sentence is when two independent clauses
(i.e. complete sentences) are joined with no conjunction or punctuation. -He tried medication he did not like the way it made him feel.
-We were leaving the house the door had to be locked To correct these sentences, you have several options: 1) Separate clauses using punctuation.
2) Separate clauses using a conjunction.
3) Rearrange the sentence (add or remove words). So, lets fix these sentences! -He tried medication, but he did not like the way it made him feel.
-We were leaving the house. The door had to be locked Just because a sentence is long does not necessarily mean it is a run-on. Some long sentences are grammatically correct, while some short sentences are run-ons. Say goodbye, Tommy! Hoot!
