Homework Help: comma splice

Posted by patti on Tuesday, November 21, 2006 at 8:32pm.

Dr. frankenstein flung a power switch, ble streamers of static electricity crackled about the table, the creature gave a grunt and opened smoldering eyes.


Is there a comma splice in this sentence and how do I rewrite it without one









Dr. frankenstein flung a power switch, ble streamers of static electricity crackled about the table, the creature gave a grunt and opened smoldering eyes.

There may be two of them, but I need to know what "ble" is to be able to tell.

There are three primary ways to correct comma splices:
1. add a coordinating conjunction after the comma
or
2. make the comma into a semicolon
or
3. make a new sentence

Go ahead and revise this and re-post. I'll check it for you.

Dr. Frankenstein pushed a power switch, and blue streamers of static electricity crackled. The creature gave a grunt and opened his eyes.

The comma splice was after "crackled."
