Coordinate Compound Sentence


The predicates are semantically coordinate and the conjunction is translatable as ‘and’, ‘but’, or ‘and at that time’. Coordinate compound sentences may consist of a series of verbs with the same subject, joined by conjunction. It can also consist of two clauses with different subjects, joined with ‘and’. If the two clauses are contradictory, they could be joined with ‘but’. (Suttles, 2003, p. 146)
