Sentence Fragment

A sentence fragment is a phrase or clause written as a sentence, the first word starting with a capital letter and the sentence ending with a full stop, a question mark or an exclamation mark. Either the subject or the finite verb, that defines an independent sentence, has been left out.

Fragments should not be used in business writing. However, sentence fragments are perfectly acceptable if you mean to use them in creative writing.

"A squat grey building of only thirty-four stories. Over the main entrance the words CENTRAL LONDON HATCHERY AND CONDITIONING CENTRE, and, in a shield, the World State's motto, COMMUNITY, IDENTITY, STABILITY."
(Aldous Huxley, Brave New World)
