Types of sentence structure:
There are four types of sentences, on the base of the structure, that are given below.
- Simple sentence.
- Compound sentence.
- Complex sentences.
- Compound complex sentences.
So these are four basic types of sentence structure we discuss them one by one.
A simple sentence is that type of sentence that consists of one independent clause.
Examples of the simple sentence:
- The moon goes around the earth.
- Water freeze at 0 degrees.
- I love my new cat.
- Sara enjoys cooking.
- Florida is in America.
- You run to the party.
So all the above sentences, have an independent clause so these are simple sentences.
A compound sentence is that type of sentence that has two or more than two clauses joined together by conjunction or a semicolon. Each of the clauses could form a sentence alone.
Examples of the compound sentence:
- My father’s job is so difficult, but he enjoys going to work every day.
- I like hot chocolate; it sends me to sleep.
- The bell rang and the music began.
- Ali asked for three candies. But he got four candies.
- She watches cartoons. And her brother watches sports.
A complex sentence is that type of sentence that consists of an independent clause and also a dependent clause. So that two types of clauses make a complex sentence.
Examples of the complex sentence:
- I washed the car after coming home.
- I love this class because I like to study Pakistan study.
- When the rain stopped, we went back out to play.
- The boys did not go to the zoo because they went to the park.
- Many people enjoyed the movie; however, Ali did not.
Compound complex sentence:
A compound-complex sentence is that type of sentence that consists of at least two independent clauses and one or more than one is a dependent clause. So these clauses make a compound-complex sentence.
Examples of compound-complex sentences:
- While Sara reads novels, Ali reads comics, but Ahmed reads only magazines.
- When you ready, I will call the cab, and we can go together.
- Sara forgot her anniversary, so she sent her a card when she finally remembered.
- When you are free, I will call the store, and we can talk to the manager.
- Sara wants cake because she is hungry, but she cannot take the calories.
