  1. Complete Sentences, Fragments, and Run-on Sentences 0501.1.13 Recognize incomplete sentences and run-on sentences and edit appropriately. SPI 0501.1.9 Select the most appropriate method to correct a run-on sentence (i.e., conjunctions, semicolons, periods to join or separate elements) within context.

  2. Complete Sentences 1. A complete sentence tells a complete thought and has both a subject and a predicate. • My class sold many boxes of candy.

  3. Fragments 2. A fragment is a group of words that lacks a subject and a predicate. • The wind inside a tornado.

  4. Run-on Sentences 3. A run-on sentence is two or more complete sentences that run together. • A tornado can be called a twister it is also called a cyclone.

  5. Comma Splices 4. A comma splice is a comma that joins two independent clauses. A clause is a group of words that have a subject and a predicate. • Robert ate worms, Mary dislikes Robert.

  6. Three Ways to Correct a Run-on Sentence • There are three ways to correct a run-on sentence. • Add a period and capitalize the next word. • A tornado can be called a twister it is also called a cyclone. • A tornado can be called a twister. It is also called a cyclone.

  7. 2. Use a comma and a coordinating conjunction (FANBOYS). • A tornado can be called a twister it is also called a cyclone. • A tornado can be called a twister, but it is also called a cyclone.

  8. 3. When sentences are related to each other, add a semicolon. • A tornado can be called a twister it is also called a cyclone. • A tornado can be called a twister; it is also called a cyclone.
