    • No it just means anything you write has less forms of pauses causing normal people to always read your texts as if you're always ranting and could not catch a breath for fear of bursting in frustration

    • The joke is that the post is a huge run on sentence and nobody got it

    • To be fair, although they are grammatically correct, they don’t look professional when writing papers at all. Good luck having anyone taken you seriously when your essay as “and” three times in one sentence. The school system may suck, but they do get some things right.

    • Notice how it’s a run on sentence
      8 1
    • It’s weird because you diagram the sentence but each “and” he says has its own subject and predicate with a new clause so it really is grammatically correct but it’s weird because there’s too many subordinating conjunction and clauses

    • Run on sentences are easily understood when written correctly since our minds work easily to put things together especially when it's a situation in which we need to think a bit harder but it's not like we can just automatically shit in a bucket and throw it at someone because there needs to be rule

    • I once wrote a ten page essay and forgot that there needed to be more then one paragraph.

    • You know I don’t really realize it’s a run on sentence it doesn’t even cross my mind but when it is a run on sentence it just pops a red flag in my head like shit something’s wrong here where tf the periods and commas at

    • What kind of teacher punishes a kid for being right

    • There’s an entire book that’s one sentence. There’s noting wrong with it if you structure it correctly.

    • And they used a run on sentence in the post
      6 2
    • No, they are wrong. sentences are not all the same you got your simple, complex, compound, semicolon, colon, and mixes to lengthen them. Adding "and" to complete sentences without a comma before it is grammatically incorrect. Punctually too.
      6
    • Although run on sentences are a common problem, one should not be discouraged, or discourage others, from writing longer and more complex sentences, as such sentences can, in many circumstances, help improve the flow of the writing, provided that it is written with correct grammar and punctuation.

    • Having adhd and having written many essays, this is so freaking true. “My sentence is too long” my mother fucking ass. Why should I have to split up my information in different sentences just to get the same point across. Education system makes no freaking sense
      6 3
    • While this is true, there should at least be a comma present in this particular post.
      5
    • I like how that entire thing was a run on sentence
      5 1
    • That's what teachers do when they're wrong

    • Run on sentences will forever haunt me, I've compensated by using an unfathomably large, and simply inhuman amount of commas, just so it becomes a little easier to read.

    • Oh rly, you did that in 4th grade? I’m sure a 9-10 year old that is just introduced to a new grammatical device is going to correct their teacher

    • Run on sentences are different from inconcise /overly verbose sentences. Inconcise sentences (which is really what the poster was referring to) are technically grammatically correct but tedious to read — they shouldn’t be used often at all. Run on sentences ARE grammatically incorrect. (1)
      5 11
    • Some run on sentences do just look horrible by continuing a sentence with and, and, so, and, like that gets ver bad very quickly. However, some run on sentences that are just a little long, but are conveying a point the entire way through and are keeping the reader engaged should not be dockedPoints
      5
    • Yeah, run on sentences are, most of the time, grammatically correct, and the only reason they’re avoided is because they’re not comfortably read, although, in more advanced English classes, when used with correct punctuation, are praised as being able to string together a thought without pause
      5
    • Run-on sentences make your point overly convoluted. It's hard to keep track of the topic when your sentence is 10 paragraphs long and you don't know what a comma is.

    • So I was in second or third grade and my teacher she was old and tried to explain run on sentences and the use of commas, so when she explained them to us she would simply stop breathing indicating we needed a comma or a period. Scary coming from an old woman prone to heart attacks

    • You dummies. He has like 4 independent clauses with “and” in between, there just is no comma. This sentence is wrong.
      5
    • Use a semi-colon; the most useful yet most unused punctuation.
      5 3
    • Well your sentence had the conjunction “and” five fucking times. Quit being a lazy fuck and break up your thoughts into complete sentences. Asshole
      5 1
    • As soon as I read “run-on sentence” in the second line, I knew that whole paragraph was one sentence without even reading the rest
      5
    • Run on sentences aren't just grammatically correct sentences that are too long; the fact that they are run on means they aren't grammatically correct
      5 3
    • Education system in a nutshell. “I’m the teacher and I said this. And how dare you try to think otherwise”
      6 1
    • Run on sentences was one of the biggest scams of the education system. Go read any scholarly work and you will find that run on sentences are essential for good writing

    • just USE A FUCKING COMMA ONCE IN A WHILE GOD DAMN

    • i remember being in 1st grade and we were doing those counting by 1s, 10s, 100s blocks things and the teacher showed us a 1000 block cube but it was hallow so i told the teacher that since it was hallow and had 6 sides it would be less than 600 because blocks can’t be counted twice
      5 2
    • The very fact that its a run on sentence makes it grammatically incorrect

    • Dude his sentence about it is like the example 😶😂
      4 1
    • What's funny is that that sentence has no punctuation or commas at all.
      4
    • Adding a bunch of "and"s does not make it *not* a run-on sentence. Also, if you don't have commas before each "and" that begins an independent clause, then the sentence is not grammatically correct.

    • The entire thing was a run on sentence

    • I write like this by accident. I was never taught where to correctly put commas so I just add in periods where I can. Most of the time when writing I’ll have a long thought and type it out thinking it sounds good to me so I leave it. I didn’t realize a lot of other people can’t read it like that

    • There’s 5 “ands” in that post. You sound like a 6 year old rambling on about their 1st grade drama that you have no interest in.

    • I mean, is it really that hard to add some commas and periods every now and then?
      4
    • A run-on sentence is wrong in the sense that it is a long expression that contains grammatically distinct sentences within it. It isn’t a run-on just because it’s long. It’s a run on because it contains multiple information all at once
      4
    • Kinda, but would it kill you to use some punctuation?

    • This guys post doesn't even have a capitalized first letter or period at the end. His teacher was right to put him in the corner.

    • Maybe instead of repeating “and” over and over you can just put a period every now and then. Now is that so hard?
      4 4
    • While technically true, run-on sentences are discouraged because they sound unprofessional and messy, whilst also being extremely difficult to say in one breath. Using semi-colons to split separate thoughts that all pertain to the same subject is a safe bet.

    • As a person with adhd I can confirm this, sometimes I either use a ton of commas or feel bad for putting a period after just 4-6 words.
      5
    • Semicolons are your friend; it's okay if you don't know how to use them. Just throw; those fucker in a;t random

    • When they think phones are why no one can talk face to face. It’s really because we are trained to write like robots and with no emotion just to get a good grade and that’s why we lose the skills to talk with expression.

    • Run-on sentences aren't just really long sentences. They're sentences that combine independent clauses without a period or "comma + conjunction." Run-on sentences are grammatically incorrect.

    • Using "and" four times in a sentence to connect completely different subjects is definitely wrong
      3
    • “Longer than most people can comfortable write or read” that’s exactly why teachers try to get you not to use them. If you want to make a good piece of writing, it should be comfortable to read
      3
    • You could have used a comma before the and that separated the first two complete thoughts and a semi-colon as well as removing the "and" for the third thought
      3
    • Why so grammar rules have to be so rigid and structured like that anyway? As long as there's a bare minimum for understanding then whatever deviations you do from the norm should just be seen as personality or flavor in writing.

    • But shorter sentences feel too definite and lack the dynamic perspective that longer, more drawn out sentences provide, despite being a little bit hard to follow.

    • This guy claims that he pointed out that all the sentences were grammatically correct in the 4th grade. However, You can use long sentences if you want but they do usually have really poor flow. If you choose to use them, I’d recommend using a very short one next. It’s like a mental breath.

    • For someone so worried about being grammatically correct they have a surprising lack of capitalization and punctuation

    • As I kept reading it got faster and faster😳
      3
    • Run-on sentences aren’t wrong, but I think that punctuation just makes things... Better, really. I use punctuation to make my sentences play out in my mind the same way they would if I was speaking out loud. I place more of a premium on things flowing well than on grammatical correctness alone.

    • Yeah I will write a whole paragraph but it's really just one sentence, so I have to go through and break it up

    • If you think that's bad, you learn more about your home language outside of school than in it. Read books, novels are actually better in this case, then move on to ones translated from other languages and try to pick out as many errors as possible. That's what I did in school and I passed.

    • That sentence ran a marathon
      3
    • I’ve always struggled to identify what classifies as a “run-on” sentence because I naturally read fairly quickly so I usually don’t notice if a sentence is “particularly long” because by the time it takes realize that I’ve already finished it

    • Except that this is grammatically incorrect
