Ben’s Grammar Tip of The Week

Sentence Fragments

Always Use Complete Sentences

The most basic sentence in English has two elements: a subject and a verb.

  • She sings.
  • I write.
  • They survived.

Having a subject and a verb is the minimum requirement for English sentences. If either of those is missing, the sentence isn’t complete. It becomes a sentence fragment instead:

  • Walking past the house
  • Prefer this sandwich

Sentence fragments shouldn’t be used alone. The examples above can be easily made into full sentences or become part of a longer sentence. For example:

  • Walking past the house, I noticed the lights were on.
  • She is happy to have survived the ordeal.
  • I would prefer this sandwich.

Make it a rule for yourself to always write in complete sentences. Check if there’s a subject and a verb in your sentence. If not, insert one! Connecting sentence fragments into more complex sentences will make your English speech and English writing correct and varied.
