A sentence is a set of words that is complete in itself, typically containing a subject and predicate, conveying a statement, question, exclamation, or command, and consisting of a main clause and sometimes one or more subordinate clauses.
We have four types of Sentence according to Structures.
A simple sentences contains only one independent clause. An independent clause is a group of words (with a subject and a verb) that expresses a complete thought.Example:
I kicked the ball is an independent clause. It contains a subject (I),and it expresses a complete thought.
A compound sentence contains at least two independent clauses. These clauses are joined by a coordinating conjunction or a semicolon. A coordinating conjunction is a word that glues words, phrases, or clauses together.Example:
The above examples are joined with a coordinating conjunction: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so.OR
With a semicolon (;)
A complex sentence contains a subordinate clause and an independent clause. A subordinate clause is a group of words that has a subject and a verb but does not express a complete thought.
A compound-complex sentence has at least two independent clauses and at least one dependent clause.
