My dog is small.
I hate sprouts.
I am 10 years old.
I live in Stonham Aspal.
Simple sentences have 1 clause. Most simple sentences have a subject and a predicate.
Subject = dog
Predicate = It is small.
E.g. My dog is small.
A compound sentence is usually made from 2 or more simple sentences (or clauses) that are joined with a connective.
My dog is not popular with the neighbours.
It scares the postman away.
My dog is not popular with the neighbours it scares the postman away.
There are many connectives that
can be used in compound
But Be CAREFUL!!!
use the same connective
over and over again
It’s better to mix and match
A complex sentence is similar to a compound sentence, however when you take away the connective one of the clauses does not make sense.
E.g. The dinner was burned because she had forgotten it.
Clause 2 does not make sense on its own, without clause 1 = complex sentence.
