Transcript of FANBOYS

FANBOYS
Why would we use these?
1. They can fix run-on sentences.

For example:

The tiny boy runs down the street he wants to catch the Peterson bus.

With a FANBOYS added...

The tiny boy runs down the street, for he wants to catch the Peterson bus.
2. We can use FANBOYS to combine 2 simple sentences.

For example:

The tiny boy ran down the street. He wanted to catch the Peterson bus.

With a FANBOYS...

The tiny boy ran down the street, for he wanted to catch the Peterson bus.
What does each conjunction mean?

For example:

Marco plays basketball well, yet his favorite sport is soccer.

Conjunctions:
When do we use a comma with FANBOYS?
Use a comma when there is a complete sentence after the FANBOYS conjunction

For example: The pilot was inexperienced, so he had trouble flying through the storm.
When don't we use a comma with FANBOYS?
Don't use a comma if there is a fragment after the FANBOYS.
