Transcript of Kinds of Sentence Structure
Independent Clause vs. Subordinate Clause
can stand alone as a sentence
example: Ed swam the English Channel.
Subordinate Clause (dependent): cannot stand alone because it does not express a complete thought.
example: when she was nineteen years old

example: A good rain will help farmers.
A compound sentence contains two or more independent clauses and no subordinate clauses
example: Mel wrote about her mother's aunt, and Lee wrote about his cousin from Jamaica.
