Chapter: Creating Sentences

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.26423


This chapter focusses on how to combine the clause structures in Chapter 1 and present them in a variety of ways. It maintains a traditional approach, though it brings this use of jargon into the realisation of text-level concerns.
By the end of this chapter, students will have an awareness of sentence structures, and the basic constituents of them, as well as how to integrate a number of different sentence types for different purposes into a whole text.
