Coordinating Conjuctions

More Commonly known as
"FANBOYS"
For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, So

Independent and Dependent Clause
An independent clause is a group of words that can stand alone as a sentence. It expresses a complete thought.

A dependent clause cannot stand alone.

(A clause is a group of words that includes a subject and a verb)
Complete Sentences
A complete sentence consist of 3 main characteristics:
1- A complete sentence must start with a capitol letter.
2. It must end with a punctuation such as a (.) period or a (?)
3. Must have a main clause, a verb and a subject, and must be a complete thought.
Compound Predicate/Verb Sentence
A compound subject/verb sentence is a sentence with more than one subject or verb.
Rule
A fanboy can connect words, phrases, and clauses. A comma is used when there are two independent clauses. The comma goes before the fanboy. When there is only one subject and two verbs, then there might not be a comma.
Example
Ricky and Flo love to take pictures together, for they love each other.

Potato chips are unhealthy, yet we still eat them.
Example
The guido is weight lifting.
Example
Laura ran out of colored socks, so she went sock shopping.

My cats lie around all day, and run around all night.
