The author makes an endeavour to analyze scientific works on compound sentences (CSs) considered as unifications of predicative units on the basis of syntactical connection constructed according to a definite structural scheme. It is underscored that in linguistics there were moved two main conceptions of CS. Opinions were expressed that the latter should function as a unified communicative whole. Having studied multitude of CS features the major part of linguists specializing in Russian and Tajik languages came to the agreement about a significance of the role of conjunction in CS structure as conjunction is a principle means of connection and expression of relations between CS components. It is asserted that in the frames of compound sentence interaction between given meanings takes place, therefore, a creation of CS is targeted at expression of relations between predicative members and establishment of those ones referring to subject.
