  • English - ,

    Types of sentences by structure:

    **Simple = 1 independent clause

    **Compound = 2 independent clauses, joined correctly

    **Complex = 1 independent clause + at least 1 dependent clause

    **Compound-complex = 2 independent clauses, joined correctly + at least 1 dependent clause

    PS -- Any independent clause can be read as a one-clause, complete sentence. Dependent clauses have subject and verbs, but cannot be read as complete sentences -- they will sound like fragments (or as if someone forgot to finish the thought).
