Overview
  • Efficient way to combine related ideas to one
    sentence.

Important!!
  • Appositives serve as either an adjective in a
    sentence.
  • Just as with modifiers, appositive phrases MUST
    be placed in close proximity to the item being
    modified.
  • If not placed properly, your sentence will have
    reference problems and be confusing to your
    reader!!!
