What is sentence combining

What is sentence combining?

Sentence combining is:

  • Making the sentence smoother

  • Easier to understand or clarify

  • Putting detailed sentence of two or more short, choppy sentences


Sentence combining

  • Short sentences are easy to read, but several of them in a row can become so monotonous that meaning gets lost.

  • In other words, it gets you or the reader BORED.


Example

Example

A BMW screamed around the corner.

The BMW was fire-red.

It screeched to a stop in front of the doors.

The doors led into the school.


Sentence combining

The fire-red BMW screamed around the corner and screeched to a stop in front of the school doors.

Screaming around the corner, the fire-red BMW screeched to a stop in front of the school doors.
