Directions: In the text-area below each group of sentences, combine all of those sentences into one effective sentence containing only one independent clause.
When you're finished, click on "Grammar's Version" to see how we would have written that sentence. These sentences can be combined in many interesting ways, depending on what idea is put into the independent clause and what ideas are subordinated (and how). If you think your way of combining ideas into one sentence is better than Grammar English's, please let us know, and if we agree, we'll adopt your version and give you credit.

If you click on Grammar's Version before writing your own best effort -- well, don't blame us.
