Fixing Common Sentence Problems
Fragment-A Fragment is a group of words pretending to be a sentence. It is NOT a sentence, however, because it lacks a subject, verb, or something else.
Kelly throws the ball.
A Fragment is missing something.
Throws the ball.
Comma Splice-Connecting two independent clauses with a comma.
What is an independent clause?
I went shopping today, the grocery store was having a sale.
What is a dependent clause?
I went shopping today, which took three hours because of the crowds.
What punctuation do we use?
I went shopping today; the grocery store was having a sale.
Rambling Sentence-Sentences that go on and on and on and on and on...and use the word "and" a lot.
Example: I'm pretty good at math and science and PE and keyboarding and band and geography, but I'm not good at government and econ and history and English.
Run-on Sentence-Two sentences joined together without the correct punctuation or conjunction.
I thought the test would be easy it was hard.
What does it need?
Conjunctions can help too...
I thought the test would be easy _ it was hard.
How about a semi-colon?
