34. Sentence. Simple, compound, complex, compound-complex sentences

The main object of study in syntax is the communicative unit of the language, the sentence. The sentence is a unit of speech which expresses a complete thought and has a definite grammatical form and intonation.

The finite verb, which performs the function of the predicate, combined with the subject, forms the so-called "predicative line" of the sentence. On the basis of predicative line presentation, sentences may be divided into simple, compound and complex.

A simple sentence includes a single subject and verb group. E.g. Last July was unusually hot. Mary and John worked and studied together.

A simple sentence may be unextended if it consists only of the main parts of the sentence the subject and the predicate. A sentence is extended if it includes some secondary parts (the attribute, the object, the adverbial modifier).

A compound sentence consists of two or more simple sentences. A compound sentence unites two ideas, but it does not necessarily show the relationship between them. E g He came, he saw, he won. Man has his will, but woman has her way.

A complex sentence combines one independent clause and one or more subordinate ( dependent) clauses. An independent clause contains the more important idea. E.g. After Mary came home, Bill went to ha\>e a haircut.

A compound-complex sentence consists of at least two independent clauses and at least one dependent clause. The dependent clause can be part of the independent clause. E.g. When the heat comes, the lake dries up, and farmers fear the crop failure.
