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 = subject + predicate
2- The clause expresses one complete thought.



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


1
Illi = اِلْلي (Egyptian Colloquial) = that/who

 


Example:


شُفْتْ اِلْبَناتْ اِلْلي جابوا اِلْوَرْدْ
 

Shuft il banaat illi gaabu il ward.

I saw the girls who brought the flowers.
