This highly regarded text helps developmental writing students strengthen their writing skills and understand some of the stylistic choices available to them in written English. Simply put, sentence combining involves putting short, choppy sentences together to make more interesting, readable ones. In the process, students learn the importance of sentence variety in improving syntax. Students are able to explore a variety of ways to say something in writing and learn that there is not a single "right" way to express their point. SENTENCE COMBINING features an accessible and humorous writing style, along with innovative and thoroughly tested exercises which not only allow students to flex their creative muscles, but also offer them insights into current topics and issues. New to this edition are two end-of-text appendices on sentence combining, the writing process and sentence and paragraph strategies.
