  1. Complete Sentences Complete Sentences Fragments Run-On Sentences

  2. Complete Sentences • A complete sentence has a subject and a (verb) predicate that work together to make a complete thought. Bobby smiled until he thought his face would crack.

  3. Fragment Sentences • A SENTENCE FRAGMENT fails to be a sentence because it cannot stand by itself.

  4. Fragment Sentences • Fragments may have nouns, but no subject-verb relationship Last Saturday after the ballgame at the ice cream shop.

  5. Fragment Sentences • Fragments may describe an action, but have no subject-verb relationship. Shooting just before the buzzer rang and hoping to score the winning point.


  6. Fragment Sentences • Fragments may have a subject-verb relationship, but do not express a complete thought. Some of the girls going together to the mall.

  7. Fragment Sentences • Fragments may have a subject-verb relationship, but cannot stand by itself. Even though she was the prettiest girl and had a great talent presentation.

  8. Run-On Sentences • A RUN-ON SENTENCE (sometimes called a fused sentence) has at least two parts, either one of which can stand by itself, but the two parts have been connected together with one or two words instead of becoming two sentences.

  9. Run-On Sentences • Remember: The length of a sentence really has nothing to do with whether a sentence is a run-on or not; even a very short sentence could be a run-on. The books are heavy don’t carry them. The books are heavy. Don’t carry them.

  10. Run-On Sentences • When two clauses are connected by only a comma, they are a run-on sentence that is called a comma-splice. The books are heavy, don’t carry them.

  11. Run-On Sentence • When two independent clauses are joined with a conjunction and no comma, it is a run-on. After school I am going to the park and I am going out to dinner.
