    A compound sentence contains two independent clauses joined by a coordinator. The coordinators are as follows: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so. A great way to remember this is by FANBOYS. Ex. I tried to speak Spanish, and my friend tried to speak English. A complex sentence has an independent clause joined by one or more dependent clauses. A complex sentence always has a subordinator such as because, since, after, although, or when or a relative pronoun such as that, who, or which. EX. When he handed in his homework, he forgot to give the teacher the last page. A compound-complex sentence is made from two independent clauses and one or more dependent clauses. EX. If I earn money from my chores (DEP), I will buy a new purse (IND), but I don't get my allowance today (IND).
