Is this a run-on sentence?
I thought about what he'd said soon I realized he was right.

  • English -

    yes

    No, it is not a run-on sentence, but it is reversed. It should read, As soon as I realized he was right, I thought about what he'd said.

    GuruBlue is correct that it's better if you rephrase it.

    As you wrote it, it's a run-on, but it isn't smoothly fixed without revision.

    Are these run-on sentences also:
    A. I went home and ate and ate.
    B. Before lunch, I played volleyball; after lunch, I played again.
    C. You and I and the whole team will go.

  • English -

    B And c i think

  • English -

    None of these are run-ons.

    A = simple subject, compound verb

    B = compound sentence joined with semicolon

    C = compound subject, simple verb
