Grade 7 Grammar Lesson 12 Sentences: simple, compound and complex

A clause that can stand by itself as a complete Sentence is called an independent clause.

We can combine two independent clauses to form a single sentence using co-ordinate conjunctions such as and, or, yet, still, but, otherwise, so, not onlybut also, either…or, neither…nor etc.

A sentence with two clauses joined by co-ordinating conjunctions is called a compound sentence.
