*SENTENCE COMBINATION*

Learning to combine ideas into more complex sentences is an important writing skill. There are many ways to do this. Try to combine the following three sentences. Do not use a semi-colon.

Sentence 1: Bob Dylan is an American musician.
Sentence 2: He is one of the most famous singer-songwriters in the world.
Sentence 3: He was recently awarded the Nobel prize for Literature.

Good try!

But I don't think Dylan was awarded the prize "as he is...famous". And I don't think the idea is that he is famous "and" has been awarded the prize. This seems more accurate to me:

American musician Bob Dylan, one of the most famous singer-songwriters in the world, was recently awarded the Nobel prize for Literature.
