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
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.
