Avoiding Fragments

Baseball Catch

A sentence fragment may look and sound like a sentence, but it isn't one. It is a group of words that is missing either a subject or a verb or that doesn't express a complete thought.

To fix a fragment, add the missing part.

Fragment: Diving for the ball.  

Complete sentence: Sara dove for the ball.  

You can also fix some fragments by joining the fragment with a complete sentence.
