Abstract

I’ve spent a lot of time writing about how to create better sentences. I’ve covered everything from parts of a sentence, to cutting clutter from sentences, to adding eloquence to sentences.

But I’ve never covered those word groups that simply cannot function as a sentence. These groups of words, instead, function as other parts of speech, usually as adjectives, adverbs, or nouns. This time, we will cover prepositional phrases, verbal phrases, and absolute phrases. And I’ll give you some handy advice on using these word groups correctly. [excerpt]
