No. A dependent clause can only be in a complex sentence. You can have an independent clause in a compound sentence, though.
The three different kinds of sentences are simple, compound, and complex. Simple sentences require one independent clause but no dependent clauses. Compound sentences are made up of 2 independent clauses and a dependent clause is possible. A complex sentence requires one independent clause and one dependent clause

It is a sentence with more than one independent clause and at least one dependent clause.In grammar, a compound complex sentence is made up of two independent clauses as well as at least one dependent clause. An independent clause can stand alone, while a dependent clause cannot, since it is not a complete 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
the compound clause and the complex clause
As in sentence types? A complex sentence is one that has one or more dependent clauses and an independent clause. The dependent clause can be located anywhere in the sentence. A compound sentence is one that contains two or more independent clauses.
A complex sentence has a dependent clause and a compound-complex sentence has two independent clauses.
First of all a simple sentence has a independent clause:Janet walked to school.A compound sentence has two simple sentences inside it with a conjunction/joining word to join it:Janet walked to school, the others rode their bikes.A complex has an independent clause and a dependent clause inside one sentence:Janet walked to school, but the others didn't.A independent clause makes sense on it's own but a dependent clause doesn't.
A compound sentence has two independent clauses (groups of words that can stand alone as a sentence) joined by a conjunction such as "and" or "but". For example: "I am happy and she is sad." A complex sentence is formed by one dependent clause and one independent clause. A dependent clause is a group of words with a subject and predicate, but that cannot stand alone to form a sentence. An example of a dependent clause would be "When I get older" and a complex sentence would be "I will drive cars when i get older.
Based on the 3 types of sentences by structure, these are the 5 sentence patterns (by structure and punctuation): Simple sentence Compound sentence - clauses separated by semi-colon Compound sentence - clauses joined by a coordinating conjuction Complex Sentence - dependent clause, comma, independent clause Complex Sentence - independent clause, (no comma), dependent clause
A simple sentence only has one independent clause and no dependent clauses. A compound sentence has at least two independent clauses and can also have a dependent clause. The two independent clauses of a compound sentence are joined by a coordinating conjunction (and, but, or).Simple sentence example: I am walking.Compound sentence example: I am walking, but my friend is running.
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.
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.
In order to be "compound," a sentence must have more than one independent clause. So a sentence with 2 or more independent clauses is a compound sentence.
