Sentence Structure
  • Simple: Contains a single, independent clause.
    • I don't like dogs.

    • The old hotel opposite the bus station in the center of the town is probably going to be knocked down at the end of next year.

  • Compound: Contains two independent clauses that are joined by a coordinating conjunction. (The most common coordinating conjunctions are: but, or, and, so. Remember: boas.)

    • You can write on paper, or you can use a computer.
    • A tree fell onto the school roof in a storm, but none of the students was injured.
  • Complex: Contains an independent clause plus one or more dependent clauses. (A dependent clause starts with a subordinating conjunction. Examples: that, because, while, although, where, if.)
    • I don't like dogs that bark at me when I go past.

    • You can write on paper, although a computer is better if you want to correct mistakes easily.

  • Compound-complex: Contains 3 or more clauses (of which at least two are independent and one is dependent).
    • I don't like dogs, and my sister doesn't like cats because they make her sneeze.
    • You can write on paper, but using a computer is better as you can easily correct your mistakes.
