Sentence Combining Workbook.
Weinstein, Gary J.
Designed as a supplement to traditional writing texts, this workbook contains activities that allow students to form grammatically sophisticated sentences without having to study formal grammar. The 68 lessons in the workbook progress from relatively simple to complex, with each stressing a particular way of combining sentences. The various exercises demonstrate how to create more detailed sentences by adding (1) single and multiple adjectives; (2) adjectival prepositional phrases; (3) adverbs; (4) adverbial prepositional phrases; (5) noun, adverb, and adjective clauses; (6) participial, gerund, and infinitive phrases; (7) appositives; and (8) single word, phrase, and clause series. The workbook also contains a semester review and a comprehensive review of the exercises. (FL)
