I want to check and see if I understand an independent clause and a dependent clause. In this sentence.
"Bethany went home and spoke with her mother about tomorrow's parade.

Do I have 2 independent sentences?

  • lsu -

    No. This is a simple sentence with a compound predicate.

    You have one subject -- Bethany and two verbs -- went, spoke.
