Punctuation Creates a Run-On

Margie Wakeman Wells General, The Comma Leave a Comment

To say that the “attorney talks in run-on’s” is really not a correct statement. A run-on is created by bad punctuation. No one can “say” a run-on.

Using no punctuation or a comma between two sentences that have no conjunction between them CREATES a run-on sentence.

…He looked in my direction I tried to ignore him. πŸ™
…I saw him out of the corner of my eye, that’s right. πŸ™

When someone connects four or five sentences with the wordΒ and, that is not a run-on.

Be careful not to create a run-on sentence with bad punctuation.

Happy punctuating!
