What is a clause
What is a Clause?

  • A clause is a group of words that contains both a subject and a verb. A clause can be dependent or independent.

    Anindependent clause expresses a complete thought and can stand alone as a sentence.

    A dependent clause may contain a subject and a verb, but it does not express a complete thought. It cannot stand alone as a sentence. Another name for a dependent clause is a subordinate clause.

    Dependent clause = subordinate clause


Simple sentence
Simple Sentence

  • A simple sentence has one independent clause and no dependent clauses. Even a simple sentence can be elaborate, and it may have compound parts.

    My new puppy climbed onto the couch and chewed the remote control.

Can you find the compound parts in the sentence above?


Compound sentence
Compound Sentence

  • A compound sentence has two or more independent clauses joined together, but no dependent clauses.

  • There are only two ways to make a compound sentence:

    1. They may be joined by a coordinating conjunction

    (with a comma).

    2. They may be joined by a semicolon.

    My puppy climbed onto the couch, and he tore apart the remote control.

    OR

    My puppy climbed onto the couch; he tore into the remote control.


The complex sentence
The Complex Sentence

  • A complex sentence is made by joining an independent clause and a subordinate clause together correctly.

  • Each dependent clause starts with words such as after, although, who, which, when, until, where, so that, and since.

Subordinate conjunctions always introduce a subordinate sentence, the chart below presents the most commonly used ones.


How can i tell the difference between a compound sentence and a complex sentence
How can I tell the difference between a compound sentence and a complex sentence?

  • A compound sentence is created by a comma followed by a conjunction or a semi-colon

  • A complex sentence is created by using a subordinate conjunction


The comma rule for complex sentences
The Comma Rule and a complex sentence? for Complex Sentences

  • If the subordinate sentence comes before the independent sentence, a comma is required at the end of the subordinate sentence.

    EX: When the storm began, we were on the lake.

    We were on the lake when the storm began.

If you place the subordinate clause after

the main clause do not use a comma.


The comma rule for complex sentences1
The Comma Rule and a complex sentence? for Complex Sentences

3. Any independent sentence can be made subordinate (dependent) by simply adding a subordinate conjunction to the beginning of that sentence.

Subordinate sentences:

When we were on the lake

If we were on the lake

Before we were on the lake
