    3. 3. CHAPTER OUTLINE AND LEARNING OBJECTIVESIn this chapter, you will learn to: identify and apply sentence-combining techniques that rely on coordinating conjunctions and conjunctive adverbs. Copyright © 2012 by Pearson Education, Inc.
    4. 4. AVOIDING SIMPLE SENTENCES A group of words containing a subject and a verb is called a clause. When that group makes sense by itself, it is called a sentence or an independent clause. The kind of sentence that is one independent clause is called a simple sentence.Copyright © 2012 by Pearson Education, Inc.
    5. 5. OPTIONS FOR COMBINING SIMPLE SENTENCES Option 1: Using a Comma with a Coordinating Conjunction  You can combine two simple sentences with a comma and a coordinating conjunction.  The coordinating conjunctions are for, and, nor, but, or, yet, and so. (fanboys)  Examples: Sentences combined with and Sentences combined with nor Sentences combined with butCopyright © 2012 by Pearson Education, Inc.
    6. 6. OPTIONS FOR COMBINING SIMPLE SENTENCES Sentences combined with yet Sentences combined with so Where Does the Comma Go?  The comma goes before the coordinating conjunction.  The comma goes before the new idea, the second independent clause.  It goes where the first independent clause ends.  The comma is used when the coordinating conjunction joins two independent clauses.Copyright © 2012 by Pearson Education, Inc.
    7. 7. OPTIONS FOR COMBINING SIMPLE SENTENCES Placing the Comma by Using Subject-Verb (S-V) Patterns  Four patterns of the simple sentence: S V SS V S VV SS VVCopyright © 2012 by Pearson Education, Inc.
    8. 8. OPTIONS FOR COMBINING SIMPLE SENTENCES  When you combine two simple sentences, the pattern changes to SVSV.  This is called a compound sentence. Use the comma in front of the coordinating conjunction. Option 2: Using a Semicolon Between Two Simple Sentences  If you want to join two related simple sentences without a coordinating conjunction, you can combine them with a semicolon.Copyright © 2012 by Pearson Education, Inc.
    9. 9. OPTIONS FOR COMBINING SIMPLE SENTENCES Option 3: Using a Semicolon and a Conjunctive Adverb  You can join two simple sentences with a connecting word called a conjunctive adverb.  When you do, you must use a semicolon in front of the adverb.  Punctuating After a Conjunctive Adverb Put a comma after the conjunctive adverb if the conjunctive adverb is more than one syllabi long.Copyright © 2012 by Pearson Education, Inc.
