Runons fragments conjunctions

  1. 1. Sentence Fragments and Run-Ons
  2. 2. A Sentence Fragment is not a complete sentence Missing a subject or verb OR Does not make a complete thought.
  3. 3. These are Fragments • Took the books. • My mom and dad. • A puppy crying in Matt’s backyard.
  4. 4. Completing the Fragments Carlos took the books. Now we know who took the books. My mom and dad bought a new car. Now we know what my mom and dad bought A puppy is crying in Matt’s backyard. Now the sentence has a complete verb.
  5. 5. Sometimes a writer makes a fragment look like a complete sentence. The writer starts the fragment with a capital letter and ends it with a period, but the fragment is still a fragment.It does not express a complete thought.
  6. 6. What Is a Run-on Sentence?
  7. 7. A run-on is two or more sentences put together without the correct punctuation or capitalization. A reader cannot tell where one sentence ends and the next one begins.
  8. 8. Rafael is watching television his sister is going skating. • This is a run-on sentence. • It is two sentences put together. • One sentence tells about Rafael. • The other sentence tells about his sister. • There is no punctuation between the two sentences, and there is no capital letter to show where the second sentence begins.
  9. 9. How can we rewrite the sentence? Write two sentences: • Rafael is watching television. His sister is going skating. Use a comma and conjunction to connect the sentences • Rafael is watching television, but his sister is going skating.
  10. 10. Coordinating Conjunctions: Used with a comma to combine two sentences For And Nor But Or Yet So
