A compound sentence is a type of sentence that consists of two or more independent clauses (also known as main clauses) connected together with coordinating conjunctions, punctuation, or transitional words. Independent clauses are complete sentences that can stand alone and express a complete thought.
The purpose of a compound sentence is to show a relationship between two or more ideas or to express two or more related thoughts in a single sentence. It allows for the combination of multiple thoughts or statements into a cohesive whole.
