INGL3202– Spring 2011
Wrong word choice can result in awkwardness, vagueness, and unclearness.
Not all transitions have the same usage.
There is a tendency to confuse words that look alike, sound alike, or both.
Every complete sentence has a subject and a predicate.
If a sentence does not have both a subject and a verb, it is called a fragment.
Fragment means “broken piece”. A fragment sentence is only a piece of a sentence, not a complete sentence.
A run-on sentence is two (or more) sentences joined without adequate punctuation or a connecting word.
