Chapter 9: Building Sentences

Grammar > Building Sentences

Some English sentences are very basic:

Shakespeare was a writer.

Einstein said something.

The Inuit are a people.

You could write an entire essay using only simple sentences like these:

William Shakespeare was a writer. He wrote plays. It was the Elizabethan age. One play was Hamlet. It was a tragedy. Hamlet died. The court died too.

Stylistically, it would make for a rather boring read; although, you would receive 100% on grammar. This chapter helps you learn to recognise different types of sentences and to use them effectively in your own writing.

Maintaining this website requires alerts and feedback from the students that use it when they see a problem or have a suggestion.
