What is a compound sentence?

A compound sentence has two independent clauses joined by the conjunction that/who.


What is an independent clause
?

An independent clause can stand alone as a sentence because:
1- The clause contains a subject + predicate
2- The clause expresses one complete thought


Independent clauses in this lesson are joined by the conjunction (or relative pronoun) that/who.

Illi = اِلْلي (Egyptian Colloquial) = that/who
 

IMPORTANT: The relative pronoun in MSA/Classical has singular, dual, and plural forms as seen below in Table 1.
