Question:

How should I structure my body paragraphs?

Inactive
Krista M.
Answer:

There's no perfect paragraph as each one requires something a little different. However, there are a few general trends. Your first sentence should be a topic sentence - a sentence that lets the reader know what the paragraph will be about. The body of the paragraph should relate back to the topic sentence as much as possible, but the content will vary. Ideal paragraphs should stick to one topic and not take up an entire page. A page-long paragraph often will lose readers and lack focus.

Question:

Who were 'Les six'?

Inactive

Answer:

Les six refers to a group of mostly French, early 20th-century composers: Georges Auric, Louis Durey, Arthur Honegger, Darius Milhaud, Francis Poulenc, and Germaine Tailleferre. Their name refers back to the late 19th-century Russian "Mighty Five." Their music went against the trend of German Romantic music, prominent at the time. Their reactionary music was often avant-garde or modernist. However, the name was largely arbitrarily assigned as the composers did not often collaborate.

Question:

Where do I put the comma in this sentence: "Because I went to the store hungry I purchased too much food."?

Answer:

You should put the comma between "store" and "hungry." "Because I went to the store" is a dependent clause, and "I purchased too much food" is an independent clause. You can tell the first part is a dependent clause because it uses the subordinating conjunction: because. When you put a dependent clause in front of an independent clause, you must separate them with a comma.
