Transcript of sentences

Sentences
Simple
1 independent clause
Ex~ The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.
Contains a subject and a verb
Has to express a complete thought
Compound
2 independent clause separated by a coordinating conjunction and a comma (,) or just a semicolon (;)
Coordinating conjunctions are:

F
or
A
nd
N
or
B
ut
O
r
Y
et
S
o

Or the acronym
FANBOYS
Complex
(Don't worry it isn't COMPLEX)
Complex sentences have 1 independent clause with one dependent clause.
A dependent clause has a subject and a predicate that has an subordinate conjunction which makes it so it is not a complete thought.
Subordinating conjunctions are~

A
s
A
lthough
A
fter
W
hile
W
hen
U
ntil
B
ecause
B
efore
I
f
S
ince

That is the acronym AAAWWUBBIS
After the dependent clause, you have to put a comma.
Ex: After the monkey ate his banana, he was very hyper.
Ex: I went to the party, and at the party I saw my friend Joe.

The ball flew over the fence, but it sailed foul.
The Subordinate conjunctions can also come in the middle of a sentence.
Ex: I went to the park before dinner was made.
Notice that I didn't use a comma.
Ex - John and Mikey drove to the park.
This is also a simple sentence.
The Compound Sentence Formula
independent clause + , + FANBOYS + independent clause = Compound Sentence
Complex Sentence Formula
dependent clause + , + independent clause

or

independent clause + dependent clause = complex sentence.
What makes a complete sentence?
1) Expresses a complete thought
2) A subject
3) A predicate
4) Begins with a capital letter
5) Ends with punctuation
