  8. 8. Comma Splice•Two or more sentences can never be joinedwith just a comma.• Run-on sentences of this type can be easilyfixed by:a. adding a coordinating conjunction (i.e. for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so),b. inserting a subordinating conjunction (i.e. because, since, if),c. using a semi-colon,d. or simply making two (or more) complete sentences.
  9. 9. Ø When the professor returned my paper Iwas shocked, I had gotten an A. When the professor returned my paper Iwas shocked, for I had gotten an A. When the professor returned my paper Iwas shocked because I had gotten an A. When the professor returned my paper Iwas shocked; I had gotten an A. When the professor returned my paper Iwas shocked.

  12. 12. Improper ConjunctionAnother type of run-on sentence consists of two or more main clauses joined by an improper conjunction.This mistake commonly occurs when writers incorrectly use transition words (i.e. however, thus, therefore, hence, otherwise, then) as coordinating conjunctions—that is, as sentence joiners.
