FANBOYS Are words for combining that put together two complete sentences
How does this connect with run-ons and fragments? Which of the sentences is a fragment? 1. She entered law school. 2. And she entered law school. 3. But she entered law school. 4. Entered law school.
If a sentence begins with a FANBOY, it is a full sentence. NOT A FRAGMENT.

They combine DEPENDENT and INDEPENDENT clauses in a sentence.
It is a part of a sentence that NEEDS to be connected to a full sentence. Example: Because she was afraid, she called her mom. He called his Dad because he needed money. If you are lost, you should call me. You should call me if you need anything.
When do you need to put a comma in a sentence with an independent and dependent clause? Examples: While you were sleeping, I waited for you. Dependent Independent I waited for you while you were sleeping. Independent Dependent
Answer You need to put a comma after the dependent clause if the dependent clause is first. Where is the independent clause here? If the dependent clause is first, you need to put a comma after it. Where is the independent clause here?

Example: I love you, but I’m afraid to get married. I love you but am afraid to get married. He is lost, and he doesn’t know where to go. He is lost and doesn’t know where to go.
