Focus on Syntax
Sentences can be structurally classified into simple, compound and complex.
I. SIMPLE SENTENCES
A simple sentence consists of a single main clause.
We went to Edinburgh.
My grandfather has now retired.
Simple sentences can be further subdivided into extended and unextended. A sentence which consists only of a subject and a predicate is called unextended.
A sentence which has some secondary parts is called extended.
A rose bush grew in the garden.
Max doesn't like eating in restaurants.
II. COMPOUND SENTENCES
A compound sentence consists of two or more main clauses. It was midnight and there was no one in the street. Jane was washing up in the kitchen and her sister was ironing the linen.
III. COMPLEX SENTENCES
A complex sentence consists of a principal (main, independent) clause and one or more subordinate (dependent) clauses.
