Wikipedia A run-on sentence is a sentence in which two or more independent clauses (that is, complete sentences) are joined with no punctuation or conjunction. It is generally considered to be a grammatical error. Some grammarians also include a comma splice, in which two independent clauses are joined with a comma without an accompanying coordinating conjunction, as a type of run-on sentence,[1] while others exclude comma splices from the definition of a run-on sentence

Hi,
I'm somewhat confused about run-on sentence.
He is a good student, he studies all day long. ......> run-on sentence, isn't it?
But, my question is:
if there is no comma or keeps other punctuation between 2 sentences, will these sentences be considered as run-on sentence ?
Here, are some examples given below.
He is a good student he studies all day long ....> is it run-on sentence?
He is a good student - he studies all day long ....>is it run-on sentence?
Thanks expert...

Hi,

Even i have my doubts in Run-Ons.
My Guess is --> He is a good student he studies all day long < is a RUN ON > as 2 Independent Clauses have not been separated out .

Regards,
Abhishek
