7 Like run-ons, comma splices are serious sentence errors that confuse and annoy the readers. They are corrected the same way as run-ons. They occur when only a comma is used to separate two complete thoughts. A comma also is not sufficient to divide two thoughts. A stronger separation is necessary. Chapter 5: Comma Splices

8 To test a sentence to see if you have written a comma splice, take the sentence apart at the comma. If the part before the comma is a complete thought and the part after the comma is also a complete thought, then you need to check whether the second clause starts with a coordinating conjunction (and, or, but, so, for, yet, nor). If you do not have a coordinating conjunction to separate the two complete thoughts, then you have a comma splice. Chapter 5: How to Recognize Comma Splices
