Fixing Sentence Fragments
Your Turn Read the rules about sentence fragments. Then read the paragraph, which has problems of this kind. Rewrite the paragraph to get rid of sentence fragments, or print the lesson to mark your corrections.
Sentence Fragment Rules:
- Every sentence must have a subject and a verb and must express a complete thought.
- If a group of words lacks a subject or a verb or does not express a complete thought, it is a fragment, which is an error.
- Fix a fragment by supplying what it is missing (the subject, the verb, or the complete thought).
- Sometimes, the best solution is to combine a fragment with another complete sentence.
