Transcript

  • 1. Classification of Sentences Types
  • 2. Can you say simple ?
    • A simple sentence = one independent
    • Clause (IC) .
    • In other words, a simple sentence is
    • one complete thought.
    • Woodward students cheered for the team.
    • Sam and Sally were invited to the party.
  • 3. Remember the compound sentence ?
    • A compound sentence = two (or
    • more) independent clauses (IC+IC).
    • or
    • A joining of two complete thoughts.
    • How are they joined together?
    • Remember our comma rule (SV, & SV) and semicolon Rule 1 and Rule 2?
  • 4. Compound sentence examples
    • Using commas
    • I am heading to the
    • beach, and I also plan
    • to look for seashells.
    • IC, CC IC
    • Using semicolons
    • I am heading to the
    • beach; I also plan to
    • look for seashells.
    • IC;IC
    • I am heading to the
    • beach; furthermore, I
    • plan to look for
    • seashells. IC;CA,IC
  • 5. Let’s try complex sentences
    • A complex sentence = one independent
    • clause and one (or more) dependent
    • clauses. (IC + 1 or more DC)
    • OR
    • One complete thought and one or more
    • incomplete thoughts.
    • Remember looking for dependent clauses in
    • a sentence? They can be anywhere.
  • 6. Can we find the IC’s and DC’s?
    • When I finished the exam, I jumped up and cheered loudly. (DC, IC)
    • I ran through campus because it was raining like cats and dogs. (IC DC)
    • When Mary finished the test, she ran through campus after she jumped the puddle. DC, IC DC
  • 7. The long ones... compound-complex
    • A compound-complex sentence = at
    • least 2 independent clauses (the
    • compound part) and one (or more)
    • dependent clauses. 2 IC + 1 or more DC
    • or
    • Two complete thoughts and one
    • incomplete thought .
  • 8. Let’s look at one example.
    • I am very competitive, and I cheer
    • loudly for my team when I watch
    • the Georgia Bulldogs play a game.
    • (IC, CC IC DC)
  • 9. For you math folks…
            • A Formula
            • S = IC (only!)
            • CD = IC IC (+ IC)
            • CX = IC & DC (+DC)
            • CdCx= IC IC (+IC) & DC (+DC)
