First of all, "I am a Muckracker, coined by President Theodore Roosevelt." is a fragment... I would word it as such: The phrase, "I am a Muckracker," coined by President Theodore Roosevelt.... or "I am a Muckracker," coined by President Theodore Roosevelt, ...

errr, i am writing saying that I am a muckracker in an article I have to right for social studies. I am not saying it aloud. I just need to tell the reader that I am a muckracker and also inform them ,at the same time, that the term was coined by the president

If the sentance could portray some resentment of the president for calling me a muckracker.

I need a sentence that tells a newspaper reader that I , the author, am a muckraker and that the term was coined by Theodore Roosevelt with some resentment for him coining it that term.

A fragment is when a sentence does not contain a subject, a verb, or a complete idea. http://writingcenter.unc.edu/resources/handouts-demos/citation/fragments-and-run-ons "I am a Muckracker, coined by President Theodore Roosevelt." is a complete sentence. The subject is I. The verb is am. We have a complete idea. The problem here is that the Muckracker did not coin the phrase. What we have here is a misplaced modifier. Best way to write the sentence: I am a Muckracker. President Theodore Roosevelt coined this term for bringing up the dirt of America. It seems that you have two separate ideas, which is why you should separate the two sentences. reply if needed. :)
