Part One: Definitions
Part Two: IC/DC Rules
Welcome to my third post in the series: What to do with prepositional phrases!
My other posts were a bit long. You'll be relieved to see this one is shorter.
Prepositional phrases are treated the same way as dependent clauses: you follow dependent clauses with punctuation.
I call it the PP Rules: The Prepositional Phrase rules (although my kids do like saying PP).
- IC PP.
- PP, IC.
- I cried after reading the book.
- After reading the book, I cried.
Questions? Ask me, because I'm a grammar fan-girl.
