Compound Sentences

A compound sentence consists of two or more independent clauses. Thus, there are two thoughts within the sentence, and either can stand alone. The clauses of a compound sentence are either separated by a semicolon or by a comma and a coordinating conjunction. The most common coordinating conjunction is and; it simply links the two ideas. Other coordinating conjunctions such as but, or, for, yet, and so, establish a relationship between the two clauses.
