Ben’s Grammar Tip of The Week


Who, when thinking up words for the English language, decided to make three that sound the same but have entirely different meanings? It’s like they want us to fail.

“There” means “in or at a place/point”.

I want to go there.

“Their” is possessive.

I want to go there. (1)

“They’re” is a contraction of “they are”.

I want to go there. (3)

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.
