Sentence Quizzes & Trivia

What’s in a sentence? Sometimes one word (“No.” “Who?” “Crap.”) and sometimes a whole slew of them (pick any random page in your favorite James Joyce novel for an example).

A sentence expresses an idea, whether that idea is a question, a statement, a command, or a request, by combining one or more words into a cohesive unit. Do you know how to assemble a finely-crafted sentence? How can you avoid problems like comma splices, run-ons, and sentence fragments?

What’s a clause, and how can you combine two or more together to make a coherent sentence? How do you begin and end a sentence with the correct capitalization and the perfect punctuation? Make sure your writing has all the right stuff going on by taking our quizzes about sentences!
