Avoiding Run-Ons


A run-on sentence consists of two or more sentences written as if they were one sentence. 

A fused sentence is a word group containing two or more sentences that are run together without any punctuation. 

A comma splice contains two or more sentences separated by a comma instead of by a period or a semicolon. 

Correct run-ons by adding an end mark after the first idea, by replacing a comma with a semicolon, by adding a coordinating conjunction (and, but, or, nor, or so) after the comma, or by making one of the independent clauses into a subordinate clause.
