More About Sentences


Sentence structure is explored more deeply with attention to prepositional phrases and subordinating conjunctions introducing dependent clauses. This knowledge is applied by examining sentences for simple, compound, or complex structures. The concepts are further advanced by introducing comma splices and the correct methods for reversing those errors.
