  • 1. A Quick English Proficiency Lesson on Comm a Splices Comma splices, also called as run-on sentences, result when two independent clauses are connected with a comma incorrectly. As a review, independent clauses are clauses that are made up of a subject and a verb that conveys a complete thought. Waiting for the bus to arrive, Joel finished doing his homework, he was so bored that he finished all his homework. There are four ways in which this sentence can be grammatically correct and accepted. Separate it with a period. Waiting for the bus to arrive, Joel finished doing his homework. He was so bored that he finished all his homework. http://www.jroozreview.com 1
  • 2. Connect the independent clauses with a coordinating conjunction (for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so). Waiting for the bust to arrive, Joel finished doing his homework, for he was so bored that he finished all his homework. Use a semicolon to separate the two independent clauses. Waiting for the bus to arrive, Joel finished doing his homework; he was so bored that he finished all his homework. http://www.jroozreview.com 2
