INTRODUCTION Grammatical features of different sentence types have always captured linguist's attention who have built up a large body of scientific works regarding topical grammatical phenomena in XX-XXI centuries. The study of compound sentences is intrinsically pertinent to those issues as it focuses on a polyfunctional language unit which embraces a whole spectrum of syntactical, logical, semantical, and communicative characteristics. Therefore we've chosen the topic of our thesis to be Compound sentences in modern English. Theoretical foundation of the paper was formed by such scholars as E.Harman, K. Polanski, S. Dick, N. Kobrina, A. Korneyeva, M.Y. Blokh, Ch. Collins, H. Stokoe, B. A. Illish, B. S. Khaimovich, B. I. Rogovskaya, Ch. Fries and others. The topicality of this paper deals with the necessity of finding new approaches to the analysis of compound sentences used in literary works due to the variety of their logico-semantical, structural and communicative types and due to the creative ways in which the authors tend to use them. The objective of this paper is to describe and specify different types of compound sentences, their characteristics and the way they function in modern English. The following tasks are needed to be carried out in order to fulfil this objective: 1) to provide a general account of the main sentence types in English in order to promote the basic understanding of the place that compound sentences occupy in this classification; 2) to define syntactical nature of the compound sentence and its structural constituents; 3) to analyse and systematize different types of compound sentences; 4) to find the correlation between compound and complex sentences; 5) to research the short story "The Nightingale and the Rose" by O. Wilde in regard to the syntactic characteristics of compound sentences; 6) to identify the role of compound sentences in the story as it pertains to the use of different stylistic devices. The object under study is the short story "The Nightingale and the Rose" by O.Wilde, and the subject of the present course paper is the syntactic peculiarities of compound sentences in this literary work. The following methods were employed in the present course paper: the method of analysis and synthesis, induction and deduction, the literary method, the descriptive, comparative, and structural approaches. The research is of theoretical, analytical and descriptive character. The procedure of data analysis is based on close reading and text analysis. The significance of the study. This research would constitute practical importance to those who are interested in English grammar, in particular, compound and semi-compound sentences. The paper may provide a valuable insight into the ways of analysing different compound sentence structures in terms of the ways in which they are connected. The scientific novelty of the paper deals with the systematization of different syntactical phenomena pertaining to compound sentences. Also, very little research has been done so far regarding compound sentence structure analysis of O. Wilde's literary works. Therefore, this thesis is intended to address those concerns and fill the gaps mentioned above. To start the paper a considerable attention has been given to the way of defying the notion of compound sentence and its place among other syntactic structures of modern English. A comprehensive typology of compound sentences was given in the second paragraph. This classification will subsequently be used as a basis of the analysis of sample examples from O. Wilde's story in Chapter 2. A thorough consideration will be given to the peculiarities of coordinate clauses and the means of their connection. From the structural point of view, the paper falls into two chapters: Chapter 1. Compound sentences and their structural and functional characteristics; Chapter 2. Syntactic and stylistic analysis of the compound sentences and their function in "The Nightingale and the Rose" by Oscar Wilde. The first chapter provides an extensive overview of the main theoretical aspects relating to the syntactic features of the compound sentences. In the first part it outlines the main classifications of sentences in modern English based on communicative and structural criteria. After thoroughly considering the types of sentences existent in English today, we narrow our focus down to the compound sentences only. In the second paragraph of Chapter 1 we analyse various relations between different coordinate clauses and the peculiarities of their formal markers, namely, coordinate conjunctions and connective words of adverbial nature. The last subparagraph of the theoretical part of the work is dedicated to the problem of punctuating compound sentences. First, we have reviewed the most general rules of punctuating the coordinate clauses, and then extended on its peculiarities as it pertains to four basic logico-semantical types of relations realized in the compound sentences. In the second chapter we sustain all the theoretical statements and exemplify them using textual material from the short story "The Nightingale and the Rose" by O. Wilde. The chapter starts off with the description of the writer's biography, then there follows an overview of his literary legacy. Finally, we provide a brief literary analysis of the chosen short story. In the last part of the second chapter we've provided statistical data in the form of pie-charts. The percentage of different sentence types has been calculated, and also an analysis of how it effects the narration stylistically has been conducted. In the last subparagraph we've connected structural characteristics of the compound sentences with their stylistic implications. The course paper consists of the introduction, two chapters, conclusions and the bibliography. The total number of pages is 57; the list of sources embraces 53 items.
