Sec 5.1 says:
http://www.w3.org/TR/sparql11-query/#BasicGraphPatterns 
[[
A sequence of triple patterns interrupted by a filter comprises a single
basic graph pattern. 
]]
The word "interrupted" is ambiguous, as it sometimes means
"terminated" (no continuation) and other times it means "paused" (with
continuation).  I suggest rewording the sentence as:
[[
A sequence of triple patterns, with optional filters, comprises a single
basic graph pattern.
]]

That section also says:
[[
Any graph pattern terminates a basic graph pattern.
]]
*Any* graph pattern?  That doesn't seem to make sense, because a
sequence of triple patterns is a graph pattern.  Perhaps that sentence
was supposed to say "Any *other* graph pattern terminates a basic graph
pattern"?
