What does a sprawling sentence means?

Category: Writing Tips
Posted Date: 21 Jun 2018
A sprawling sentence refers to a sentence which is grammatically correct but lacks the concision and coherency to become comprehensible for the reader. An example of a sprawling sentence is given below: Robert Hughes is the same writer who has become a famous person because he wrote a very good book on African racism and civilization, and because it was written with the setting of the 19th century, the people today can relate better with the scenarios depicted in the book. A correct sentence can be: Robert Hughes has become a famous personality amongst the African population after the publication of his book “ABCD” which outlines the non-fictitious scenarios of African racism and civilization during the 19th century.
