Answer:

Karl Marx's theory of alienation describes the estrangement of people from their sense of self as a result of stratified social classes created by a capitalist mode of production. The four types of alienation are alienation of the worker from his product, alienation of the worker from the act of production, alienation of the worker from their species-being, and alienation of the worker from other workers.

Question:

What is an example of a comma splice? What are three ways to fix a sentence with a comma splice?

Inactive

Answer:

A comma splice occurs when a comma is inserted between two complete thoughts that could serve as two separate sentences. "We went to the mall, we bought a shirt" contains a comma splice. A comma splice can be fixed by 1) separating the sentence into two separate sentences, 2) adding an appropriate conjunction after the comma, or 3) removing the comma and inserting a semicolon. Each of the following is a valid correction of the comma splice above: "We went to the mall. We bought a shirt." "We went to the mall, and we bought a shirt." "We went to the mall; we bought a shirt."
