Sentence fragments do not have to be difficult to correct once a person gets accustomed to them. 

Again, some fragments include:


  • Subjects without Predicates (e.g. The tiger)
  • Participle Phrase - ( e.g. grabbing the lunchpail)
  • Prepositional Phrases - (e.g. in the rainforest)
  • Dependent Clauses - (e.g. If you call again)
