Synopsis by Betsy Boyd
Part of the English Tutor instructional video series, which teaches viewers the basics of English grammar and usage, English Tutor: Sentences - Complex and Compound-Complex describes two types of sentences, complex and compound-complex, and explains how to identify and write them. A complex sentence contains an independent clause, which is a simple sentence, plus a dependent clause using a subordinating conjunction. A compound-complex sentence contains two independent clauses and one or more dependent clauses. The program attempts to make these points easy to understand and remember.
