Let’s say I am compounding a sentence from the two sentences:

  • A: I do fairly well in that class to show no concern

  • B: I would appreciate some flexibility

with the conjuction but.

However, I want to spice up Sentence B by adding introductory phrases and/or clauses to the sentence.

  • Case A:

    If I want to add the introductory phrases and clauses, after all, since class is important, and if there is such a possibility, to Sentence B in that order, what would be the correct way to do it?

  • Case B:

    If I want to add the introductory phrases and clauses, expectantly and as the university would discourage such behavior on your part, to Sentence B in that order, what would be the correct way to do it?

  • Case C:

    If I want to add only introductory phrases, such as deeply and sincerely, to Sentence B in that order, what would be the correct way to do it?

  • Case D:

    If I want to add only introductory clauses, such as because the university would discourage it and if there is such a possibility, to Sentence B in that order, what would be the correct way to do it?


Note: This is regarding punctuation — commas.

  • It's pulled from a context. Sentence A and Sentence B are required to be compounded – user189910 Mar 4 '17 at 2:25
  • The correct way would be to string them together inserting commas where necessary. Case A: I do fairly well in that class in showing no concern but after all, since class is so important, I would appreciate some flexibility- if there is such a possibility. – Jim Mar 4 '17 at 3:33
