You can't write without sentences, but sentences can be tricky to write. There are many ways to slip up when writing sentences: three of the most common sentence errors are fragments, comma splices, and run-ons.

A sentence is a group of words that makes a statement or command, asks a question, or exclaims something.
Most sentences are made of a subject and a predicate.
