Recognizing Common Sentence Errors

After you understand what a sentence is, you'll be able to tell what works and what doesn't work. To avoid errors like run‐on sentences and fragments, you should learn to recognize how complete sentences are put together. Other errors, such as lack of subject‐predicate agreement, misplaced modifiers, faulty parallelism, and style problems require careful attention to the way words function within a sentence. As a critical reviewer of your own writing, you'll be able to avoid these errors.
