Adding detail to a sentence is
essential in good writing. One good way is to use an appositive
phrase at the END of your sentences.
An appositive phrase is defined
as "a word or phrase that identifies in different words a
preceding noun or pronoun." Appositives are always preceded by a
comma, but do not make a full sentence, only a phrase.
For example: (Appositive is in
bold; Noun identified italicized.)
"My friend loved his new red
car, a 2004 Mazda Miata."
Note how the word "car" is the same as "2004
"I wondered whether she would
like the Valentine's Day flowers, the gorgeous red
roses in a hand-cut crystal vase."
"She wouldn't even talk to me,
the apologetic man who had forgotten our anniversary.
