Sentence Forms

How to Understand the Different Forms of Sentences

The four forms of sentences include:

  •        Simple

  •        Compound

  •        Complex

  •        Compound-complex


Remember the following regarding clauses:


Independent clauses can stand on their own; they are a complete sentence (contain a subject and verb).


Dependent clauses cannot stand alone; they do not form a complete sentence (or thought).
