Fragments & Run-On Sentences

let s see what you know
Let’s see what you know
  • What are the necessary parts of a complete sentence?
    • Subject & Verb
    • At least one independent clause
independent dependent clauses
Independent / Dependent Clauses
  • An independent clausehas a subject and a verb and can stand alone.
  • Adependent clauseoften begins with transitional words or phrases such as because or when and is supported by the remainder of the sentence around it.
identifying fragments
IDENTIFYING FRAGMENTS
  • Ask yourself:
    • Is there a verb? If there is, then
      • Is there a subject? If yes, then
        • Is the word group an independent clause? (not beginning with words like because or when?)
          • IT IS A SENTENCE.
    • If a word group fails any of these tests, it is a fragment.
commands
Commands
  • Commands are sentences that imply the subject you, and provide an action to be done. Verbs are usually in the present tense. These are considered complete sentences.
      • Run to the store.
      • Do as I ask.
fixing fragments
Fixing Fragments
  • Once you have identified a word grouping as a fragment, try one of these solutions:
    • Rewrite the fragment as a complete sentence.
    • Connect the fragment to a nearby sentence.
      • If lists are involved, you can often connect with a colon or a dash.
are these fragments
Are these Fragments?
  • If you were to summarize your experiences here so far in a 30 sec spot. What details would you include?

independent dependent clauses1
Independent / Dependent Clauses
  • An independent clausehas a subject and a verb and can stand alone.
  • Adependent clauseoften begins with transitional words or phrases such as because or when and is supported by the remainder of the sentence around it.
three causes for run on sentences
Three causes for run-on sentences
  • FUSED SENTENCES
    • Two or more independent clauses with no punctuation or coordinating conjunction between them.
  • COMMA SPLICES
    • Two or more independent clauses separated by a comma with no coordinating conjunction between them.
    • Two or more independent clauses separated by a comma but is joined by a word that is not a coordinating conjunction
coordinating conjuctions
Coordinating conjuctions
  • There are only seven coordinating conjunctions in English. They are:
    • And
    • But
    • Or
    • Nor
    • For
    • So
    • Yet

    • So
    • Yet
identifying run ons
IDENTIFYING RUN-ONS
    • Does the sentence contain two independent clauses?
  • If so, ask yourself:
      • Are the clauses joined by a comma and a coordinating conjunction? (and, but, or, nor, for, so, yet)
        • Are the clauses joined with a semicolon? (;)
          • IT IS NOT A RUN –ON SENTENCE.
    • If a word group fails any of these tests, it is a run-on, and should be revised.
fixing run ons
Fixing Run-Ons
  • Once you have identified a word grouping as a run-on, try one of these solutions:
    • Use a comma and a coordinating conjunction.
    • Use a semicolon (;) either by itself or with a transitional expression (however, therefore).
    • Separate the clauses into their own sentences.
    • Restructure the sentence usually by making one of the clauses subordinate (dependent).
semicolon
Semicolon (;)
  • A semicolon is used to join two closely related independent clauses whose relationship can be understood without a coordinating conjunction.
  • A semicolon can be used alone or accompanied by a transitional expression (however, therefore, moreover, in fact, for example)
  • If a transitional expression is used to link independent clauses, a semicolon is required.
