at least one dependent clause.

 

After reading the cleaning instructions,

use the broom and mops,

that are standing in the corner.

Remember to read the fine print.

 

A complex sentence has one independent clause

&

at least one dependent clause.

I always wanted a horse,

but

I should have been

more specific.

Hi-HO Comma, Away !

A complex thought has one independent claw

&

at least one dependent claw.

Sometimes a comma is used

to separate claws.

# Claws, clause,cause, cuz, comma, cruise

 

A calm plexi-sentence has one independent cause

&

at least one dependent cause, B.

      The economic conditions have had an impact on language. Many clauses are unable to leave home and are still dependent.
