The Complex Sentence

By Shannon Haugstad

slide2

A SENTENCE has a noun, a verb (also called the subject and predicate), and a complete thought.

Example Sentence:

I shall haunt you

until your dying day.

A sentence is also called an Independent clause.

Sentence = Independent Clause

slide3

A complex sentence is made of an independent clause and one or more dependent clauses.

A dependent clause CANNOT stand alone as a complete sentence. It HAS a subject and verb, but DOES NOT complete the thought.

Examples:

When the shadow appeared on the wall. . .

If I see blood. . .

Although I thought I would like to see a ghost. . .

slide4

A Dependent Clause frequently begins with a relative pronoun

That . . .which. . . Who. . . Whose. . . whom

Examples:

1. The ghost, Whose image I see in this photo, haunted my house.

2. I really think that ghosts are real.

3. The old Hotel, which is reported to be haunted by the Blue Lady, is located in Skykomish, Washington

slide5

Other Dependent Clauses begin with Subordinating Conjunctions

Here are a few:

before, after, when, until, while, because, since, if, unless, provided that, although, though, even though, despite, in spite of

slide6

Add a Dependent Clause to a simple sentence and you have a COMPLEX sentence!

Examples:

1. When the Zombie was about to strike, I lit him on fire.

2. Although I like movies about zombies, I would not like to meet one in real life!

3. I carry garlic because I believe in Vampires.

Beware the Comma!

DC,IC

No comma is needed if a sentence has the independent clause first.

If a sentence has the dependent clause first, use a comma.
