What is a fused sentence?
A fused sentence contains two or more independent sentences joined together without a connecting word or punctuation mark. He wanted to eat he had no money. This error in grammar could be corrected by adding the word but or a semicolon between the words eat and he.

A comma splice and a fused sentence are essentially the same thing: they are both incorrectly punctuating two independent clauses if not two sentences. An example of a comm…a splice would be: I need to do my homework, the assignment is due tomorrow. The reason this is a comma splice is because the comma is too "weak" to hold the two independent clauses together. You can correct the sentence in the following ways: I need to do my homework; the assignment is due tomorrow. I need to do my homework, and the assignment is due tomorrow. I need to do my homework. The assignment is do tomorrow. I need to do my homework because the assignment is due tomorrow. Fixing comma splices really depends on what it is that you are trying to say, but the constant factor is that there is a comma being used to separate two independent clauses, and a comma can never do that. The difference between a comma splice and a fused sentence is that while a comma splice uses a comma incorrectly to separate two independent clauses, fused sentences don't use any punctuation, and so the sentence literally becomes "fused". Take the previous example: I need to do my homework the assignment is due tomorrow.

Paul likes fancy mice he keeps 30 of them. APEX:)
Rupert has an anger management problem, if the slightest thing goes wrong he can quite easily blow a fuse. All the lights went out and the TV switched off, we knew what to do…, if only we had a replacement fuse.. We lit the fuse and took cover, it was less then ten seconds before the safe door blew and we all became rich.

To correct a fused sentence, one uses a method of either separating or joining the independent clauses. You can join them by using a conjunction, such as 'and', 'or' or 'but',… as well as using correlative conjunctions, like 'neither...nor' or 'not only...but also.' You can separate them by using a punctuation that ends a sentence, like a question mark or a period. Example: "I walked the dog while it was raining we both got wet." Correction: "I walked the dog while it was raining. We both got wet." or Correction: "I walked the dog while it was raining and we both got wet." Hope that helps! ^^
ANswer it yourself u fat mama brain
A sentence in which two or more independent clauses are not properly joined by a semicolon or conjunction. Also called run-on sentence .
a comma splice is basically a sentence where punctuation marks are not placed correctly and are just placed everywhere. Incorrect. A comma splice is an incorrectly used comm…a to try to join two distinct ideas within one sentence. Changing the comma to a semicolon corrects the sentence. a fused sentence is a sentence that has no punctuation markings anywhere amd just drag out. Usually labelled as a Run-on Sentence, meaning many ideas not correctly separated within one sentence. Better to separate the ideas into several sentences.
These are all sentences made up of independent clauses that are not joined by a coordinating conjunction or correct punctuation. A comma splice is a sentence with two indepen…dent clauses joined only by a comma: Answer every question to the best of your ability, however, do not spend too much time on any one question. This can be corrected in two ways; 1. Separate it into two sentences: Answer every question to the best of your ability. However, do not spend too much time on any one question. 2. Use a semicolon instead of the comma: Answer every question to the best of your ability; however, do not spend too much time on any one question. A run-on or fused sentence is made up of independent clauses with no coordinating conjunction and no punctuation between them: Extremely hot weather can be dangerous drink plenty of water. One way to correct this is to insert a coordinating conjunction: Extremely hot weather can be dangerous, so dring plenty of water.
