The article is devoted to the special type of complex sentences that is accepted in the traditional grammar as accompanied complex sentences. The authoress has substantiated that the peculiarities of given sentences are concealed not in semantic but in syntactical structure. Such kind of sentences are based on the usage of specific technique of forming subordinate predication which is called 'subordinate attachment'. Characteristic features of the given sentences are correlation of a subordinate clause with the composition of the main clause or its segment which expresses reduced proposition; 'non-standard' arrangement of conjunctional way; sentenced-by-correlative connection between the parts; semantic and formal completeness of the main part; expressing additional (extra) information to the main clause or its valuation by a subordinate clause; ability of easy transformation of such complex sentences into compound ones or sentences without conjunctions. It has been proposed that not only traditional accompanied sentences but some sentences with attributive, spacious and temporal meaning can be classified as sentences which are made up with the usage of technique 'subordinate attachment'.
