    Bellringer: Fragments - Take Notes

    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.

    • Possible Revision: 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:

    The comma splice is the incorrect joining of two independent clauses with a comma. Ex. They believe in Oedipus, he is their king.

    There are three common ways to solve this problem:

    1. Use a period to separate the clauses into two sentences:
            They believe in Oedipus. He is their king.
    2. Join the clauses with a coordinating or subordinating conjunction, depending on their relation to one another:
            They believe in Oedipus, for he is their king.
    3. Join the clauses with a semicolon:

           They believe in Oedipus; he is their king.
