  • Week 1 Class 3 Ewrt 1A
  • Agenda  Presentation: Four Sentence Types  Discussion: review for essay #1
  • Types of Sentences 1. Simple 2. Compound 3. Complex 4. Compound-complex
  • #1: Simple Sentence  A simple sentence has one subject and one verb  I like to study grammar.  A simple sentence is also called an independent clause.  An independent clause ends with a period or semicolon.
  • Simple Sentences  Examples:  Carol’s sweater is red.  You and Alex need to be quiet.  Ms. Bennett did a cartwheel and a backflip.
  • #2: Compound Sentence  A compound sentence is made up of two or more simple sentences joined by one of the following:  A comma and a coordinating conjunction  I like to study grammar, and I love this class.  A semicolon  I like to study grammar; I love this class.  A semicolon and an adverbial conjunction  I like to study grammar; therefore, I love this class.
  • Coordinating Conjunctions  Coordinating Conjunctions are used to join together two independent clauses.  Examples:  For  And  Nor  But  Or  Yet  So
  • Two independent clauses joined together I love you, and you love me. Independent clause Independent clause
  • Semicolons  “If the relation between the ideas expressed in the main clauses is very close and obvious without a conjunction, you can separate the clauses with a semicolon” (Little, Brown Handbook, 9th Edition, p. 361).
  • COMPOUND SENTENCE: SEMICOLON Mary has benefited from her writing exercises; she has good grammar and punctuation. Tiffany works in San Francisco; she runs The Duck. Elaine pays attention in class; she takes copious notes
  • COMPOUND SENTENCE: adverbial conjunctions MOREOVER HOWEVER NEVERTHELESS OTHERWISE THEREFORE
  • COMPOUND SENTENCE: CONJUNCTIVE ADVERBS Thomas is cool; moreover, he is fashionable . Luke’s grandmother buys him sweaters; however, he does not like them. Clause 1 Clause 2 Independent Independent
  • #3: Complex Sentence  A complex sentence is a simple sentence (independent clause) to which a part of a sentence (dependent clause) has been added.  Because I like to study grammar, I love this class.  I love this class because I like to study grammar.
  • A dependent clause joined to an independent clause. (The dependent clause needs the rest of the sentence for support.) Because you love me, I love you. Dependent clause Independent clause
  • A dependent clause contains a subject and verb. It begins with a subordinating conjunction, and thus it does not express a completed thought. A dependent clause is also called a subordinate clause. Dependent clauses, like babies, cannot stand alone. Because you love me. Fragment!
  • A Tip on Punctuation  Since dependent clauses are only part of a sentence, you can never connect them to another sentence with a semicolon. Semicolons are only used between two independent clauses.  I have loved you for years ; although I never admitted it.  I have loved you for years, although I never admitted it. OK No!
  • Common Subordinating (Dependent) Conjunctions after even if now that that where although even though once though whereas as if rather than unless wherever as if whenever since until whether because in order that so that when which before than in case while
  • Complex Sentences  Examples:  When Trey was little, he played with blocks.  After class, good students study.  If I pass 1A, I will take 1B.  Use the stairs in case of fire.  Ava stands at the bottom of the cliff while the climber moves up the rock.
  • #4: Compound/Complex Sentence  A compound/complex sentence is the last and most complicated type of sentence.  It contains at least one dependent clause and at least two independent clauses.
  • A dependent clause added to two or more independent clauses Because we are a family, I love you, and you love me. 2 independent clauses Dependent clause
  • Compound Complex Sentences Example:  Laura forgot her friend’s birthday, so she sent her a card when she finally remembered.
  • Simple Compound Complex Compound/ complex Since every sentence in English fits into one of these four categories,
  • Think You’ve Got It?  1 independent clause = simple sentence  Don’t’ forget: These can have compound subjects and predicates!  2 independent clauses = compound sentence  1 or more dependent clause + 1 independent clause = complex sentence  2 or more independent clauses + 1 or more dep. clause = compound complex sentence
  • Let’s Review…
  • Simple, Compound, or Complex?  The teacher walked into the classroom, greeted the students, and took attendance.
  • Simple, Compound, or Complex?  The teacher walked into the classroom, greeted the students, and took attendance.  SIMPLE:  Subject: “the teacher”  Compound Predicate “walked into the classroom, greeted the students, and took attendance.”
