What Is a Sentence Fragment?

Writing complex sentences with proper structuring and grammar tools—this is a sentence fragment because it does not have a complete independent clause. Unlike the run-on sentence, which has two or more clauses improperly joined or separated, the sentence fragment or incomplete sentence is lacking essential components. In this essay, we will look at how to recognize an incomplete sentence and how to fix one. Don’t lose points in your IELTS or TOEFL writing section for this simple error. This will cost you points in both the grammar category and the cohesion category.
