Homework Help: Sentences

Posted by Mandy on Thursday, October 19, 2006 at 3:32pm.

What kind of sentence is this:

Noah Webster supported himself through
sales of his spelling book over 100
million copies of the book were sold.

1.Properly constructed sentence
2.Dangler
3.Run-on
4.Misplaced part





























We will start with the idea that this is NOT a good sentence.

Question? Does it have too many ideas in one sentence for it to make good sentence? If that is true ,then it is a run- on.

Does it have a modifier that doesn't relate to anything in the sentence? If that is true , then it is a dangler.

Are all the modifiers next to the words or parts that they describe? If not, then you have a misplaced part.
