---Foolish Fragments---

Do you know what a complete sentence is?

A SENTENCE is made up of one or more words that express a complete thought. A sentence begins with a capital letter and ends with a period, question mark, or exclamation point.


What is a Fragment?
A sentence must have two characteristics:
    1. It must have a subject and a verb;
    2. it must have independence or completeness.

If either of these characteristics are missing from a group of words written as a sentence, the result is an error called a sentence fragment. 

Let’s look at some examples.
Sylvia feels happy this morning.  Because the sun is shining. She is leaving early to take a walk in the woods.

"Because the sun is shining" is a sentence fragment.

More examples
Fragment: I couldn't fall asleep.  Although I was tired.
Correct : Although I was tired, I couldn't fall asleep.

Fragment: I bought a 16-pound turkey.  Which wasn't enough food.
Correct : I bought a 16-pound turkey, which wasn't enough food.

Take a look at these examples !

Fragment: He couldn't see that movie.  Being only 14.
Correct : Being only 14, he couldn't see that movie.

Fragment: I bought a 16-pound turkey.  To feed 25 people.
Correct : I bought a 16-pound turkey to feed 25 people.
