A horse walks into a bar. The bartender says “Why the long face?” The horse says “I’ve just realized I’m a metaphysical concept within a fictional narrative, and will cease to exist at the end of this sentence.”

I feel for this horse

What’s up with comma splices?

theyuniversity:

A comma splice is a grammar error that is created by joining two independent clauses (complete sentences) with a comma. It is one of the most common grammar mistakes; if you pay attention, you’ll encounter dozens of them each day.

image

Since we have two complete sentences, we would form a comma splice if we combined them by using just a comma:

image

We see comma splices everywhere, and it’s unfortunate that people don’t know how to correct them.

Here is an easy way to correct a comma splice:

imageimage

There is another way to fix comma splices: use the “FANBOYS”:

image

IMPORTANT NOTE: If the sentences are short, the comma before each FANBOYS is optional. However, on the SAT and ACT exams, they ALWAYS require a comma.

The technical name for the FANBOYS is coordinating conjunction. The term itself isn’t important; what actually matters is the role that coordinating conjunctions play. So let’s take a random comma splice and fix it by using one of the FANBOYS:

image

The sentence is now correct. On standardized tests, comma splices are quite common. Placing one of the FANBOYS between the two independent clauses (i.e., complete sentences) solves this problem. Just be sure to pick the one that makes the most logical sense. (For instance, there is a big difference between “but” and “and,” so you have to pick the right word.)

Good luck on the SAT!

gr8cosplaytips:

You see three items before you:

A wig that can become any colour/style and never frizzes/goes out of place.

A needle/thread that can match any fabric and easily creates seams that never rip (can be used in a machine too).

Contacts that match your prescription if you have one and can become any colour/size that never dry out so you could theoretically leave them in forever.

You can only take one. Which one do you take? 

Would definitely take the contacts
