**SENTENCE COMBINATION, Feb, 15th, 2013**



Learning to combine ideas into more complex sentences is an important skill in writing. There are many ways to do this--many possible bonus points! Try to combine the following three sentences.

1. Many people celebrated Pancake Day by cooking pancakes at home .
2. Other people went to restaurants some of which offered “all you can eat” pancakes that day.
3. Pancake Day is more properly known as Shrove Tuesday, the day before Lent, which is when Christians start the Lenten fast.

Even though Pancake Day is more properly known as Shrove Tuesday, the day before Lent, which is when Christians start the Lenten fast, many people celebrate Pancake Day by cooking pancakes at home while others go to restaurants some of which offer “all you can eat” pancakes that day.

ZEINAB: A good start--now check punctuation and verb tense;-)
YOSUA:Yes, but that initial conjunction doesn't work;-)

Pancake Day is more properly known as Shrove Tuesday, the day before Lent, which is when Christians start the Lenten fast ; and many people celebrate Pancake Day by cooking pancakes at home, while other people go to restaurants some of which offer “all you can eat” pancakes that day.

Veronica Baig said...

YOSUA:it still doesn't work--the fact that Pancake Day is correctly known as Shrove Tuesday has no connection with eating pancakes;-)
ALEXEY:Yes, but you either have to omit a word or change the punctuation;-)

Pancake Day, or what is more properly known as Shrove Tuesday, is the day before Lent when Christians start the Lenten fast and celebrate it by cooking pancakes at home or going to restaurants which offer "all you can eat" pancakes.

Pancake Day, properly known as Shrove Tuesday, falls on the day before Lent,and people celebrate it by cooking pancakes at home, or by going to restaurants which offer "all you can eat" pancakes all day; it is also the day before Christians start their Lenten Fast.

GEORGE:Almost--please check the punctuation;-)
KENNETH:That's a good version:-)
PEGGY:An excellent solution:-)
