Independent clauses are simple sentences. They contain a subject and a predicate. Examples: The team won the championship. We're attending our family reunion in Florida. She's a friendly, outgoing person. The tiny puppy scares easily.
Yes, these are the two main types of clauses. The names are dependent and independent clauses.

There are two kinds of clauses and three types of clauses in the English language. The two kinds are independent and dependent. An independent clause consists of a subject and a predicate that represent a complete thought. Dependent clauses depend on independent clauses to make complete sense. the three dependent clauses are noun clauses, adjective clauses, and adverb clauses.
A simple sentence.
A dependent clause is an incomplete statement and must be paired with an independent clause. Some examples of a dependent clauses would be: The worried man. Drove quickly. The first time.
a sentence consisting of three or more very short independent clauses joined by conjunctions
what is the main reason for connectining independent clauses with a semicolon
Yes. two independent clauses can be joined by a conjunction.
No, a complex sentence contains one independent clause and one or more dependent clauses. A sentence containing two independent clauses is called a compound sentence.
One independent clause + dependent clause= complex sentence Two independent clauses = compound sentence Two or more independent clauses + two or more dependent clauses = compound-complex sentence
You join 2 independent clauses in a compound sentence with a comma.
A complex sentence has an independent clause and one or more dependent clauses. A compound sentence has 2 or more independent clauses. A compound-complex sentence has two or more independent clauses and one or more dependent clauses.
These are called independent clauses.
A coordinating conjunction joins two independent clauses.
All you have to do is put a comma and a transition in between the two independent clauses.
A semicolon would be the appropriate punctuation connecting two independent clauses IF there is no coordinating conjunction; However, if there IS a coordinating conjunction (and, but...) then you would only use a comma to separate both independent clauses
No, independent clauses can stand alone as sentences, but dependent clauses cannot stand alone.
A conjunction, a coordinate one for independent clauses and a subordinate one for dependent clauses.
You have described a "complex" sentence. - Simple sentence = An independent clause. - Compound sentence = Two independent clauses joined with a conjunction. - Complex sentence = An independent clause plus one or more dependent clauses.
