Example text

During the 1970s, phrasal modification was part of an effort to use grammar as a means of improving writing through what was known as sentence combining. Although sentence combining does not appear to offer any long­term benefits to writing performance, the technique of phrasal modification is an important one that can give writers a valuable tool in their effort to make their writing more varied and interesting.  And how does one teach grammar effectively?  The students who had been reading novels wrote just as well as those who had studied grammar.

Clause Type Example Significant Feature Independent Buggsy loved Las Vegas. Can be punctuated as a sentence Subordinate Macarena danced until her legs were weak. Linked to independent clause via subordinating conjunction Relative Macarena, who loved spicy food, owned three Linked to independent clause via relative Mexican cook books.  We call this feature tense.  The future has to be conveyed in a way that does not involve changing the verb.  Can you believe it?  Differences in verb tense across languages played an important role in the shift from traditional grammar to phrase­structure grammar in the early 1900s (a topic that we take up in the next chapter).

Fritz asked Macarena to go to Catalina, and Fred asked her to go to San Francisco.  As noted, the first case is a run­on sentence; the second case is a comma splice; and the third case is a fused sentence. The governor asked the legislature to reconsider the bill that had failed during the previous session, and convened a special task force to evaluate its ramifications if passed.  The governor asked the legislature [something] and convened a special task force. The cat jumped, and played.  Moreover, separating the two parts of the predicate with the comma is bound to make some readers think negatively about the writer because it is such an obvious violation of existing conventions.
