Transcript of Sentence review

Once more, from the top! Sentence Structure: A Review Independent Clauses Abbreviated as IC Compound Sentences You have 2 ICs with this type of sentence,
and there are 2 ways to join them. The easy way to make a compound sentence is to use a coordinating conjunction. The pattern is IC, cc IC. The second way
to make compound sentences is to use a semi-colon. What's a DC, then? A D.C. stands for DEPENDENT CLAUSE. Using a Dependent Clause with an Independent Clause is called a COMPLEX Sentence. There are 2 patterns to forming
COMPLEX sentences coordinating

are FANBOYS Each of the coordinating conjunctions
has a specific use/meaning. Think of your semi-colon as both a period (that ends the first IC) and a comma (that connects the second IC to the original.) Each sentence could stand alone but they are closely related. Each sentence carries equal weight. There are CLUE WORDS to indicate a DC (dependent clause) The most common clue words
are Because, Although/Even though,
So (when it means so THAT),
While (using subject + verb),
and TIMELY words: Before, During, After
