Sentence types slide show

  1. 1. Sentence Types What do you already know about the sentence types in English? a. How many sentence types are there? b. What are some types of mistakes that are made with the sentence types which are very confusing for readers?
  2. 2. Why is it important to know the sentence types? Being able to look at a sentence that you write to see what 'type' it is gives you the power to find and fix mistakes. It also gives you the confidence to know when something is right or wrong instead of trying to see if it 'sounds right'.
  3. 3. There are 4 Sentence Types in English <ul><li>Simple Sentences
  4. 4. Compound Sentences
  5. 5. Complex Sentences </li><ul><li>Adverb Clauses
  6. 6. Adjective Clauses
  7. 7. Noun Clauses </li></ul><li>Compound-Complex Sentences </li></ul>
  8. 8. Errors with the Sentence Types <ul><li>Fragments
  9. 9. Fragments don't have enough 'sentence parts' to make a correct sentence.
  10. 10. For example:
  11. 11. The man who ate at my house last week. </li></ul><ul><li>Run-ons
  12. 12. Run-ons have too many sentence parts, or parts that are joined incorrectly.
  13. 13. For example:
  14. 14. Susan ate, however, she was still hungry. </li></ul>
  15. 15. What is the goal? The learning goal in this unit is to learn enough about the sentence types so that you can edit your own writing to find and eliminate fragments and run-ons.
