Complex sentence

clause and one or more dependent clauses. The dependent clauses may be noun clause, adjective clauses or adverb clauses Examples: >What happened made the boy cry. >The problem is that we do not have much money. > I will introduce you to Amin, who is the best student in our school. >I used to live in the village before I moved here

more independent clauses. Examples: >When the air is very dry, the days are hot; but the nights are cool.

Some other types of sentences

Quotation (kutipan) Imperative (bentuk perintah)

Sentences with quotations:

Direct quotation

Examples: >He said, I write for newspapers. >I write for newspapers, he said, and sometimes I write for magazines, too. Indirect quotation Example: >She said that she liked that dress.

Imperative sentences
The imperative mood commands or asks someone to

do something. It is always in the present tense. The subject is almost always you, but it is generally omitted. If it is a command, it is often said rather loudly, and in writing ends in an exclamation mark. Example: >Please help me. >lend me your eraser, please. > Tell Anna that information when you meet her.
