If we have a sentence with has no conjunction but has 2 verbs then which type of sentence is it

Go clean your room.

I think it is compound

  • No: it's complex since it consists of the independent clause "Go clean your room", and the dependent infinitival clause "clean your room". "Go" is a catenative verb and the infinitival clause is its catenative complement. Compound sentences have two or more independent clauses, e.g. "[You clean your room] and [I'll do the shopping]". – BillJ Apr 20 at 17:32
  • @BillJ Thanks for replying, I dont understand how clean your room is a dependent clause . It seems to be independent . – Talha Israr Apr 21 at 4:38
  • Yes, for every verb, there must be a clause. I've posted an answer for you. – BillJ Apr 21 at 6:36

Go [clean your room].

No: it's a complex sentence since it consists of the independent clause "Go clean your room", and the dependent infinitival clause "clean your room".

"Go" is a catenative verb and the infinitival clause is its catenative complement.

Compound sentences, by contrast, have two or more independent clauses, e.g. "[You clean your room] and [I'll do the shopping]".
