Compound Sentences

A compound sentence is a sentence that is created by joining two or more independent sentences with a conjunction and, in many cases to prevent a run-on sentence, a comma.

Examples of conjunctions:

F A N B O Y S
for and nor but or yet so

Other examples:

before
since
because
although
while
if
unless
whether

THE MAIN THING ABOUT A COMPOUND SENTENCE IS THAT WHAT'S ON EITHER SIDE OF THE CONJUNCTION COULD STAND ALONE AS A SENTENCE.

Example:
Peter went to the store, but he did not go to the post office.

Non-example:
Peter went to the store but not the post office. ("Not the post office" is not a complete sentence - there's no verb.)

Example:
I did my homework, and I also did all of my chores.

Non-example:
I did my homework and all of my chores.

Example:
I should have been allowed to go to the movies since I did all of my chores.

Non-example:
I should have since I did all of my chores.

YOUR HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT:
You are to write three examples and three non-examples of compound sentences. Unoriginal responses (copied or too close to someone else's post) will not receive credit.
