Garbled Sentences

A garbled sentence is difficult to understand because it contains several errors in grammar, usage, and mechanics. When you write a garbled sentence, the entire sentence will be highlighted in the Grammar feedback category. Each of the individual errors in the garbled sentence will also be highlighted by feedback category.

There are two approaches to correcting garbled sentences. You can read them aloud to see if you can hear the mistakes in them or you can review the errors that are highlighted in each feedback category. Your instructor or writing tutor can provide the best advice for correcting this kind of sentence error and may even suggest using a different method of revising.
