  1. Sentence Combining Exercises

  2. Joining sentences with coordinators

  3. For effect/cause And addition Nor addition of negatives But contrast Or alternative Yet contrast So cause/effect Remember FANBOYS:

  4. Punctuating coordinators sentence + comma + coordinator + sentence Mary enjoys math, for it is challenging. Judy doesn’t work, nor does she want a job. James needs a vacation, or he’ll go crazy.

  5. Using coordinators and subordinators to compare and contrast comparison contrast Coordinators and but, yet Subordinators although even though though while whereas Coordinators give equal emphasis to the ideas they join. Subordinators de-emphasize the ideas they are attached to. They are sometimes called concession words.

  6. Transition words Because transition words do not join two sentences, we have to be aware of the correct ways to use them. • Join two logically-related sentences with a semi-colon and show the logical relationship with a transition word. • Separate the sentences with a period, and show the logical relationship with a transition word.

  7. Coordinators can join sentences and begin sentences. When they join sentences, place a comma before the coordinator. • Kim likes heavy metal, but Tom prefers jazz. • Subordinators join dependent clauses to sentences. When the dependent clause comes first, place a comma after it. • While Kim likes meat, Tom prefers salads. • If the dependent clause follows the independent clause, don’t use a comma. • Kim likes meat while Tom prefers salads.
