1 Kinds of Sentence Structure

2 Simple Sentence I love to cook. A simple sentence contains ONE independent clause.

3 Simple Sentence Rachel Ray and Emeril Lagasse are my two favorite TV chefs. A simple sentence can have a compound subject.

4 Simple Sentence A simple sentence can have a compound verb. Giada De Laurentiss is looking and is smiling at the camera.

5 Simple Sentence A simple sentence can have a compound subject AND a compound verb. Pat Neely and Gina Neely own a restaurant in Memphis and have a show on Food Network.

6 Compound Sentences A compound sentence needs a COMMA and a CONJUNCTION or a SEMI-COLON to join the independent clauses together. A compound sentence contains two or more independent clauses and NO dependent clauses.

7 Compound Sentences Guy loves to visit different places, and he loves to eat the food he finds there. A compound sentence needs a COMMA and a CONJUNCTION or a SEMI-COLON to join the independent clauses together.

8 Compound Sentences Ace of Cakes is one of my favorite TV shows ; I love to watch them build cakes. A compound sentence needs a COMMA and a CONJUNCTION or a SEMI-COLON to join the independent clauses together.

9 Complex Sentences A complex sentence contains one independent clause and at least one dependent clause. The DEPENDENT clause part of a complex sentence can be an adjective clause or an adverb clause.

10 Complex Sentences- ADJECTIVE clause Adjective clauses are subordinate clauses that function as adjectives. They can modify any noun or any pronoun. Usually begin with a relative pronoun- thatwho which whom whose

11 Complex Sentences- ADJECTIVE clause Iron Chef, which features people who compete in creating culinary masterpieces, is another one of my favorite TV shows.

12 Complex Sentences- ADVERB clause Adverb Clauses are subordinate clauses that function as adverbs. They can modify any verb, any adjective or any other adverb. Usually begin with a subordinating conjunction- after BecauseWhen WhereAlthough While As soon as SinceUnless

13 Complex Sentences- ADVERB clause When I grow up, I want to be just like Paula Deen.

14 Compound-Complex Sentences A compound-complex sentence contains two or more independent clauses and at least one dependent clause.

15 Compound-Complex Sentences Even though Ill never have my own TV show, I will always love to cook, and I will always have my dream of becoming a chef.

16 Comma Splices I love to watch Food Network, Big Daddys House is my new favorite show. When two independent clauses are connected by only a comma, they constitute a run-on sentence that is called a comma-splice.

17 To fix a comma splice, add a conjunction. I love to watch Food Network, and Big Daddys House is my new favorite show.

18 Run-On Sentences I am not picky because I like to watch all of the Food Network shows because there are really good chefs on each show because the chefs are really talented. A RUN-ON SENTENCE (sometimes called a "fused sentence") has at least two parts, either one of which can stand by itself (in other words, two independent clauses), but the two parts have been written all together instead of being properly connected.

19 To fix a RO- break the RO into smaller parts and take out unnecessary words. I am not picky because I like to watch all of the Food Network shows. There are really talented chefs on each show. I am not picky because I like to watch all of the Food Network shows because there are really good chefs on each show because the chefs are really talented. Before After
