Sentence Styles

In the last chapter we defined three grammatical simple, compound, and the fragment, which, though not grammatically complete, may still stand as a sentence. From these types derive seven sentence styles: the segregating sentence, the freight-train sentence, the cumulative, parallel, balanced, subordinating, frag ment. We shall review them in this chapter.

We need to be clear at the outset about two points. First, none of these styles is inherently better or worse than the others. Each is suited to some effects, ill-adapted to others. Second, the styles are not mutually exclusive. In fact, a skillful writer calls upon all of them.
