|Avoiding Comma Splices||
This quiz was prepared by Christine Calamari, a student in Professor Karyn Hollis's Tutor Training course at Villanova University.
Directions: Click on "The sentence, please!" and a sentence containing a comma splice will appear in the top text-area. Repair the sentence. When you are finished with each sentence (or, if you wish, wait until you've done them all), click on "Grammar's Version," which will reveal how we would have repaired the sentence. Don't cheat by looking at Grammar's Version first.
There is more than one way to repair a sentence with a comma splice, and we have tried to indicate those possibilities, when appropriate, with a variety of responses.
