    Question compound sentences

    If I place a coordinating conjunction in a sentence between two phrases, will the resulting sentence be a compound sentence?

    Re: compound sentences

    Hello Ak,

    In a compound sentence, a coordinating conjunction connects two sentences.

    Thus:

    1. He called her name.
    2. She turned round.

    To make a compound sentence from the two sentences above, we can connect them with "and", i.e.

    3. He called her name and she turned round.

    Best wishes,

    MrP
