The Simpsons Teach Sentences


Independent clause marge

Independent Clause - Marge

  • Marge is an independent woman. She can survive on her own.


Independent marge clause

Independent (Marge) Clause

  • Just like Marge, an independent clause can survive on its own. It is a complete sentence with a subject and a verb that expresses a complete thought.

  • Subject + Verb


Examples of independent marge clauses

Examples of Independent (Marge) Clauses

  • Bart does not like to go to school.

  • Lisa loves the saxophone.

  • Homer loves beer, donuts, pork rinds and sleeping.

  • Otto is not a safe bus driver.

  • Maggie does not talk.


Compound sentence marge f a n b o y s marge

Compound Sentence(Marge + , + F.a.n.b.o.y.s + Marge)

For

And

Nor

But

Or

Yet

So

For this to work, you must have a comma between the first clause and the FANBOYS!


Examples of two independent clauses brought together these are known as compound sentences

Examples of two independent clauses brought together. These are known as Compound Sentences.

Homer loves to snuggle with Marge, for Marge is really sexy.

Principal Skinner and Mrs. Krabapple are in love, andthey have to sneak around so they don’t get in trouble.

Lisa stays out of trouble at school, nor does she slack off in her studies.

Lisa and Bart may fight a lot, but they do love each other.

Otto drives the bus dangerously, or he often finds a way to wreck it.

Homer is totally incompetent at work, yet he still manages to keep his job.

Mr. Burns is very rich, so he can have whatever he wants.


The simpsons teach sentences

You can also bring two independent clauses together with a semicolon. These would also be Compound Sentences.

Homer loves to snuggle with Marge;Marge is really sexy.

Principal Skinner and Mrs. Krabapple are in love; they have to sneak around so they don’t get in trouble.

Lisa stays out of trouble at school;shedoesn’t slack off in her studies.

Lisa and Bart may fight a lot; they do love each other.

Otto drives the bus dangerously;he often finds a way to wreck it.

Homer is totally incompetent at work;he still manages to keep his job.

Mr. Burns is very rich;he can have whatever he wants.


Dependent clauses homer

Dependent Clauses (Homer)

Homer is messed up when he is on his own. Without Marge by his side, things go wrong. He is DEPENDENT

on Marge and cannot survive without her.


Dependent homer clauses

Dependent (Homer) Clauses

Just like Homer, a dependent clause cannot survive by itself. It does not express a complete thought.

IT IS NOT A SENTENCE.


Examples of dependent homer clauses

Examples of Dependent (Homer) Clauses

AfterHomer met Marge

Although Otto drove the bus

As Lisa played the saxaphone

WhenBart plays pranks

WhilePrincipal Skinner hides

UntilHomer causes another meltdown

Because Maggie never speaks

Before the show begins

If Gil could ever get a break

Since Mr. Burns is so rich


Examples of dependent homer clauses1

Notice the words, after, although, as, when, while, until because, before, if andsince are all subordinating conjunctions. The acronym to remember is AAAWWUBIS.

Examples of Dependent (Homer) Clauses

AfterHomer met Marge

Although Otto drove the bus

As Lisa played the saxaphone

WhenBart plays pranks

WhilePrincipal Skinner hides

UntilHomer causes another meltdown

Because Maggie never speaks

Before the show begins

If Gil could ever get a break

Since Mr. Burns is so rich

All of these dependent clauses would be considered fragments!


The simpsons teach sentences

Uh, I just wanna know … where do I fit in in grammar? What am I? Am I being snubbed in this educational grammatical process?

I just feel like … so left out. I’m much more relevant than that Homer guy. I mean, that was like 20 years ago. Kids know me – but they don’t know him. In fact, I could kick his (CENSORED).


A rule to know

A Rule To Know!

A dependent clause (Homer) must have an independent clause (Marge) by it to be a complete sentence.


Let s review the three types of sentences

Let’s Review the Three Types of Sentences!

  • Simple Sentences (Independent Clause/Marge)

  • Compound Sentences (Ind. Clause/Marge + Ind. Clause/Marge)

  • Fragment (Dependent Clause/Homer)

  • Complex (Ind. Clause + Dep. Clause OR Dep. Clause + Ind. Clause)


Simple sentences marge subject verb

Simple Sentences (Marge)Subject + Verb

  • Margewalks to the lake.

  • Homersleeps too much.

  • Bartis cool.

  • Lisawill want to get a dog.

  • Ottowon the school safety award

  • Moewants a large-screen TV for the bar.

COMPLEX SENTENCE


Examples of complex sentence aaawwubbis homer marge

Examples of Complex SentenceAAAWWUBBIS+ Homer,+ Marge.

  • AlthoughHomer has made a lot of mistakes, Marge still forgives him.

  • Until Lisa goes to college, she will have to live with her parents.

  • When the grass turns green, Homer will have to mow the lawn.

  • After Bart passes third grade, there will be a huge celebration.

  • While Otto gets into wrecks, he keeps his job as a bus driver.

    Again, all the complex that begin with a dependent (Homer) need a comma before the independent (Marge).

COMPLEX SENTENCE


Examples of complex sentence marge homer no comma

Examples of Complex SentenceMarge + Homer. (NO COMMA)

  • Marge forgives Homer although he has made a lot of mistakes.

  • Lisa will have to live with her parents until she goes to college.

  • Homer will have to mow the lawn when the grass turns green.

  • There will be a huge celebration when Bart passes third grade.

  • Otto keeps his job as a bus driver while he keeps getting into wrecks.

    In this case, you do not need a comma between the clauses.
