    example of problems

    I want to explain my problem by the following example. If I read a sentence of following form, I can't understand this types of sentence.

    The committee were in there, had all special seats there, drinks ready right, and said right girls, you ready to start?

    When I can't understand this types of sentence, I post my problems in this site. Then some peoples solve my problem by the following way.

    The [committee] were in there, [they] had all [their] special seats there, [their] drinks ready right, and [they] said right girls, you ready to start?

    At last, I realize this types of sentences.

    Now I want to the links of websites/PDF files in which about this kind of complicated sentences have been discussed. Please help me.

    Re: example of problems

    There are so many different aspects to that poorly written sentence that I'm not sure that "this kind of complicated sentence" is an acceptable way of describing it. There are hundreds (probably thousands) of ways to construct a complicated sentence.
    I don't know why you put "committee" in square brackets. "Drinks ready right" doesn't make any sense in the original. I don't know what a "special seat" is. The best way I can reword this sentence is like this:

    The committee were in there, they had all taken their seats (or 'they were all sitting down'), they all had their drinks ready and then someone said "Right, girls, are you ready to start?"

    Where did you find the original sentence? It's important to quote your source.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
