Tips for writing a good paper: Common Grammatical Mistakes: Sentence Fragments These are incomplete sentences. Remember that ALL SENTENCES need a subject and a verb.Example: She was an interesting talker. (This is a complete sentence.) A woman who had traveled all over the world and lived in 7 countries. Comma Errors Periods and commas go inside quotation marks.Example: I am consistently amazed by the TV show "The X-Files." Two sentences cannot be separated by a comma. Agreement Errors A subject must agree with or match the verb. But, while these examples are simple, some subject/verb agreements are not so easy to spot.
