Four and a half types of sentence

Putting sentence types together

Advanced: Sentence types and compound meaning

What if we want to combine the different sentence types? Provide information and ask a question? Exclaim in surprise, and give a command?

Good news! We can create relationships between different sentence types using connectors, just like the ones we used in Connectors and an Introduction to Complex Meaning.

Here are some examples:

"Please step into your new home, and wipe your feet outside so no mud gets indoors."

The Bad BeginningLemony SnicketSource

Uh-oh, they'd looked inside.
