Sentences that consist of two or more parts are called in Ukrainian складні речення (“difficult” or complex sentences in Ukrainian). In English grammar, there are two different terms for those sentences: compound and complex. In this article, I will try to break it down for you to make those “difficult” sentences a bit easier.

Складні речення in Ukrainian can be of two types:

  1. Сполучникові (with a conjunction)
    • Складносурядні (compound sentences in English)
    • Складнопідрядні (complex sentences in English)
  1. Безсполучникові (without a conjunction)

Let’s see the types within each group. I will demonstrate each type with some simple examples that are all based on the sentence Іде дощIt is raining.

1.1 Складносурядні речення or Compound sentences in Ukrainian

These are sentences that consist of two or more independent clauses connected with conjunctions like і, а, або, але, etc.

There are 3 main types of складносурядні речення:

Type

Conjunctions

Examples

Єднальні

і (й, та) – and

і… і… – both… and…

ні… ні… – neither… nor

не тільки… а й – not only, but also

Іде дощ і дме вітер.

І дощ іде, і сонце світить.

Не тільки дощ іде, а й дме сильний вітер.

Протиставні

а – and/but

але – but

зате, проте, однак – but, however

У Києві йде дощ, а у Львові яка погода?

Іде дощ, але це не проблема.

Розділові

або, чи – or

то… то… – either… or…

Іде дощ, чи це мені здається?

То дощ іде, то світить сонце.

1.2 Складнопідрядні речення or Complex sentences in Ukrainian

These are sentences that consist of one independent clause and one or more subordinate clauses (підрядні частини).

There are various types of складнопідрядні речення. They are all grouped into three main categories.

Category

Meaning and linking words (conjunctions)

Examples

Складнопідрядні речення з підрядним означальним

Complex sentences with Attributive Clause

Attributive clauses perform the function of an attribute and stands after the noun that it modifies.

що, який – what, who, which, that (with animate and inanimate nouns)

The conjunctive words

який (m), яка (f), яке (n), які (pl) in a Subordinate clause may also take different cases.

Дощ, що розпочався позавчора ввечері, досі йде.

Іде дощ, якого ми так довго чекали.

Складнопідрядні речення з підрядним з’ясувальним

Complex sentences with Explanatory Clauses

Subordinate clauses explain the action in the independant clause.

що – that

хто – who

як – how

чи – whether

and others

Я чую, що іде дощ.

Я слухаю, як іде дощ.

Ти знаєш, чи йде зараз дощ?

Складнопідрядні речення з підрядними обставинними

Complex sentences with Adverbial Clauses

Adverbial clauses indicate:

Час (time):

коли́ – when

по́ки – while

до́ки – until, till

відко́ли – since

відто́ді як – since

з тих пір як – since

Коли йде дощ, я люблю сидіти вдома і читати.

Поки йде дощ, ходімо в кав’ярню.

Відколи йде дощ, ми не виходили на вулицю.

Місце (place)

де – where

куди́ – where to

зві́дки – where from

Дощ іде там, де він потрібен.

Умова (condition)

якщо́ – if

якби́ – if, if only

Якщо йде дощ, я трошки запізнюсь.

Якби не йшов дощ, я би приїхала вчасно.

Причина (cause)

тому́ що – because

бо – because, as

оскі́льки – as far as

а́дже – because, since

Я не буду бігати сьогодні, тому що (бо, оскільки, адже) іде дощ.

Мети (goal)

щоб – in order to

аби́ – in order to  

для то́го щоб – in order to

Дощ іде, щоб (аби, для того щоб) росли дерева й рослинки.

Порівняння (comparing)

як – as, like

мов, немо́в – like, as if

на́че, нена́че – like, as if

Іде сильний дощ, наче (мов) з неба на землю хтось ллє воду з відра.

Допуст (concession)

хоч, хоча́ – although

дарма́ що – notwithstanding

незважа́ючи на = по́при – in spite of, despite

Я піду на прогулянку, незважаючи на (попри) те, що йде дощ.

Міра і ступінь (degree)

що – that

що аж – that

Іде такий сильний дощ, що аж нічого не видно.

Наслідок (consequence)

так що – so that

Іде дощ, так що сьогодні не будемо бігати.

2. Безсполучникові речення – Complex sentences without linking words

These sentences consist of clauses that are not connected by any conjunctions, but punctuation and intonation. Unlike in English where these would be just two separate sentences, this type is very common in Ukrainian.

Some examples of безсполучникові речення with дощ again:

  • Іде дощ, віє вітер.
  • Іде дощ – сьогодні не будемо бігати.
    Dash is used if the second clause is a result of the first one.
  • Погода зіпсувалася: іде дощ, віє сильний вітер.
    Semicolon is used when the second clause explains the first one.

***

Would you like to take some time to practice using complex sentences in Ukrainian, as well as the linking words and conjunctions? Write down 5 sentences in the comments below and I will check and comment your work.

Also, we will be talking more about the Ukrainian complex sentences in the context of real life situations and dialogues in episodes 116-118 of the Ukrainian Lessons Podcast Season 3.
