For thorough discussion of punctuation within sentences, see the following: Comma Splice (“cs”), Fragment (“f”), Run-on (“r”), Semicolon (“semi”), and Subordinate Elements, Punctuation of (“ps”). For more information on punctuation, refer to Punctuation Patterns and The Second Sin: Incorrect Punctuation of Two Independent Clauses.
