If a subject of a sentence has more than one verb, that verb is called a compound verb.
Compound verbs are two or more verbs which are joined with a coordinating conjunction. The coordinating conjunctions are: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, and so. An easy way to remember these is the first letter of each word spells “fanboys.”
Combining verbs helps make the text flow and not sound choppy with short sentences.
