  1. Please make a list of as many “prefixes” as you can find

A prefix is a piece of a word that when added to a word creates a new one.  For example, un- is a prefix.  When you add it to a word like “forgettable” you get a new word: “unforgettable.”

Compound sentences

Explanation of sentence types:



Conjunctions are simple words that allow you to connect two sentences without having to change any of the words in the original sentences:

and, but, nor, or, so, yet, for  Some teachers tell students to think of the acronym FANBOYS to help remember — for, and, nor, but, or, so

Example: Maria created a résumé. She copied it on expensive, high-quality paper. Her prospective employer was not accepting resumés.

Revision: Maria created a résumé, and she copied it on expensive, high-quality paper, but her prospective employer was not accepting résumés.


  1. Write five (5) original compound sentences and post your answers to A,B, and C.

Please note, do not worry about “nor.”  It is not going to help in this brief assignment.


Also note that saying “Jack and Jill went up the hill” is only a simple sentence that has two subjects.   A true compound sentence will have two complete thoughts that can be “cut into two”:


“Jack fell down and broke his crown, and Jill came tumbling after.”   This is a true compound sentence because there are two complete halves.  If you cover the word “and” you actually see two sentences.
