A compound sentence is 2 sentences connected. The way you connect sentences is by using a conjunction.
OHHHHH! conjunctions such as but, and, or, so, for, nor, or a semi colon.
Every time before a conjunction you have to use a comma and that comma is always to the word left of it. unless you use a semi colon.
To use a semi colon you have to have 2 different situations such as Terry likes hot dogs that's one sentence or situation and then you put a semi colon and the second situation or sentence.; he also likes hamburgers.
OK OK.How do use a semi colon?
