Compound-Complex Sentences

Posted: March 12, 2019 at 1:14 pm   /   by   /   comments (0)

As the name suggests, a compound-complex sentence brings both of these sentence forms together. That is, it contains at least two independent clauses (like a compound sentence) and at least one dependent clause (like a complex sentence). For example:

  • Erin loves her brother, and he loves her too because she pays his bills.
  • The dog ran off when I chased him, but I didn’t care.
  • Though my mother says it doesn’t matter, I am tall, and she is short.
