    Bell Ringer - Fragments - Take Notes in Your Composition Notebook

    Fragments are incomplete sentences. Usually, fragments are pieces of sentences that have become disconnected from the main clause. One of the easiest ways to correct them is to remove the period between the fragment and the main clause. Other kinds of punctuation may be needed for the newly combined sentence.

    Below are some examples with the fragments shown in red. Punctuation and/or words added to make corrections are highlighted in blue. Notice that the fragment is frequently a dependent clause or long phrase that follows the main clause.

    • Fragment:Purdue offers many majors in engineering. Such as electrical, chemical, and industrial engineering.

    • Possible Revision: Purdue offers many majors in engineering, such as electrical, chemical, and industrial engineering.

    • Fragment: Coach Dietz exemplified this behavior by walking off the field in the middle of a game. Leaving her team at a time when we needed her.

    Bell Ringer:

    Copy the following notes into your Composition Notebook

    An independent clause is a group of words that can stand on its own as a sentence: it has a subject, a verb, and is a complete thought. 

    ?Examples:

    ?He ran.

    ?He ran fast.

    ?I was late to work.

    ?A dependent clause is a group of words that also contains a subject and a verb, but it is not a complete thought. Because it is not a complete thought, a dependent clause cannot stand on its own as a sentence; it is dependent on being attached to an independent clause to form a sentence.

    ?Examples:

    ?Because I woke up late this morning… (what happened?)

    ?When we arrived in class… (what occurred?)

    ?If my neighbor does not pay his rent on time… (what will happen?)
