Title: Run On Sentences

Run On Sentences
  • To use with The Cay

2
  • A run-on sentence is two or more sentences that
    are incorrectly written as one sentence. The
    length of the sentence has nothing to do with it
    being a run-on sentence. Run-on sentences may be
    more than one sentence written as one without end
    marks, OR a run-on may be more than one sentence
    joined with commas.

  • 3.  The third method for correcting run-on
    sentences is joining the two short related
    sentences with a semicolon. Use a semicolon to
    join sentences when the ideas are closely
    connected and need no transition word to explain
    the connection between them. The semicolon, as
    used here, is the grammatical equivalent of a
    period.
