Cohesive sentences are those that have at least one subject and a verb. They should make complete sense by themselves. Several sentences together make a paragraph. For the paragraph to be cohesive, you have to make sure that all the sentences are individually cohesive and that they follow each other in a logical sequence.
There are many ways in which we may combine sentences. While combining sentences, we must ensure we do not change the meaning it is intended to convey. We may combine sentences using punctuation instead of conjunctions.For example:She stayed home. He worked.She stayed home while he worked. – using a conjunction (while)She stayed home; he worked….
Two or more simple sentences may be combined into one simple sentence by using a participle, a noun or phrase in apposition, a preposition with a noun or gerund, the nominative absolute construction, an infinitive, an adverb or an adverbial phrase. Example: He is very tired. He cannot run. – He is too tired to run.
