Combining Sentences

5/19
Recursos

Both independent and dependent clauses are groups of words that contain a subject and a verb. The difference is that an independent clause expresses a complete thought and a dependent clause does not. So, an independent clause can stand alone as a sentence.

There are four different sentence structures: simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex.

  1. Simple: one independent clause.
  • Lisa is my neighbor.
  1. Compound: two or more independent clauses.
  • Lisa is my neighbor, and she is my friend.
  1. Complex: one independent clause, one or more dependent clauses.
  • I am her friend because she is adorable.
  1. Compound-complex: two or more independent clauses, one or more dependent clauses.
  • I am her friend because she is adorable, so we are always together.

We are going to work with the two first ones: SIMPLE and COMPOUND. We can combine two independent clauses using a period, a semicolon, or coordinating conjunctions. It is necessary to do it so you can avoid run-on sentences.

  • Period: We have a new student. He is from Italy.

  • Semicolon: We have a new student; he is from Italy.

  • Coordinating conjunction: We have a new student, and he is from Italy.

A coordinating conjunction is a word that joins two elements: two verbs, two adjectives, two phrases, two independent clauses, and so on. They are used to make the ideas sound more fluent.

When using them to join two independent clauses, use a comma before the conjunction. It is easier to remember all the coordinating conjunctions with the acronym FANBOYS (For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, and So).

<h3>Run-ons - Comma Splices - Fused Sentences</h3>

~
Run-ons, comma splices, and fused sentences are all names given to compound sentences that are not punctuated correctly. The best way to avoid such errors is to punctuate compound sentences correctly by using one or the other of these rules.
~
1. Join the two independent clauses with one of the coordinating conjunctions (and, but, for, or, nor, so, yet), and use a comma before the connecting word.

He enjoys walking through the country , and he often goes backpacking on his vacations.
~
2. When you do not have a connecting word (or when you use a connecting word other than and, but, for, or nor, so, or yet between the two independent clauses) use a semicolon ;

He often watched TV when there were only reruns ; she preferred to read instead.
or
He often watched TV when there were only reruns ; however, she preferred to read instead.
~
So, run-ons and fused sentences are terms describing two independent clauses that are joined together with no connecting word or punctuation to separate the clauses.

鉂 They weren鈥檛 dangerous criminals they were detectives in disguise.
鉁 They weren鈥檛 dangerous criminals; they were detectives in disguise.
鉂 I didn鈥檛 know which job I wanted I was too confused to decide.
鉁 I didn鈥檛 know which job I wanted, and I was too confused to decide.

Examples of compound sentences:

  • They ran out of money, for they paid all the damages.
  • Mark had played all the melodies, and he was greeted with shouts of happiness.
  • She wasn鈥檛 available, nor was he.
  • It is a beauty rose, but it has thorns.
  • Should I stay or should I go?
  • This meal was delicious, yet we couldn鈥檛 eat it all.
  • Maurice will apply for the internship, so he鈥檒l have to study a lot.

Clauses:
Contains a Subject + Verb + Idea

There are two clauses

  • Independent clause
    Main clause

An independent clause is a group of words that contains a subject and verb and expresses a complete thought. An independent clause is a sentence.

Jim studied in the Sweet Shop for his chemistry quiz.

  • Dependt clause
    Subordinated clause

A dependent clause is a group of words that contains a subject and verb but does not express a complete thought. A dependent clause cannot be a sentence. Often a dependent clause is marked by a dependent marker word.
